James Kergon, Scotland senior partner at KPMG in the UK, said: “Our clients rely on our talented and experienced people to support them through the different challenges they face.

“Celebrating the growth and success of our people is always important but given the past 18 months, this round of promotions is particularly significant and signifies our commitment to the Scottish market as well as the continued hard work of our people.

“We pride ourselves on our ability to create a working environment which encourages our people to build skills and grow their careers, so I’m delighted to recognise all the promotions across Scotland this year.

“With the economy cautiously recovering after a period of significant turbulence, we know that clients are beginning to focus on growth once more, which is why having a first-class team across the country will be crucial in helping them achieve ambitions for long-term growth.”

KPMG UK has made a range of senior promotions across the UK, with over 1,700 colleagues promoted on 1 October, the start of the firm’s new financial year.
