KPMG Australia chairman Michael Andrew to take over from Timothy Flynn in the global role

Michael Andrew is the new global chairman of KPMG.

Andrew, who currently serves as chairman of KPMG Asia Pacific and KPMG Australia, will lead the global network from 1 October.

He succeeds Timothy Flynn, who will retire after 32 years at the firm when his four-year term expires at the end of September.

Andrew, who will serve in his role from Hong Kong, has spent 27 years with KPMG.

“Our key strength is the strong collaborative relationships KPMG member firms have with their clients,” said Andrew.

“My primary focus will be developing and empowering our people so they can execute on our strategy and help KPMG’s clients succeed in this increasingly complex world.

“Tim Flynn has provided superb leadership these past four years and I look forward to building on his record of achievement.”

Flynn said: “As the first chairman of KPMG International from ASPAC, he reflects the increased importance of that region in the global economy. Without question, Michael will bring the knowledge and perspective that will continue to increase the ability of the KPMG network to meet the needs of clients around the world.”
