Accountancy Age Awards 2010 Global Firm of the Year - KPMG

awards 2010 logoAn outstanding set of data on KPMG’s performance in the last year has nailed them Accountancy Age’s Global Firm of the Year.

Leading auditor of stock exchange-listed companies (391), according to Hemscott; more than 7,000 new client engagements; plus strong revenue and profits during what has been another tough year for the economy, saw KPMG win the top prize.

But it’s also the qualitative part of KPMG’s entry which impressed. One senior CFO testimonial described KPMG as “a true partner, always going the extra mile to deliver high quality client service and adding significant value to our business”.

The firm also made its big move into £340m purpose-built headquarters at 15 Canada Square, “designed and built to better serve our clients,” said KPMG.

KPMG Europe expanded its reach to 14 countries, from three. Other highlights included raising nearly £900,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society, and 32% of staff contributing 33,000 volunteering hours.
