Andrew Morgan has been named as the new chair for KMPG’s southern operations.
Morgan will now oversee strategy for offices in Reading, Bristol, Southampton, Plymouth, Cardiff and more.
He has over 30 years of experience working for operations in the south, liaising with corporates from UK PLCs, large overseas owned multinationals and privately owned businesses.
He will now succeed Karen Witton, who goes on to focus on a global position for KMPG’s tax function after four years in the role.
Morgan said: “I’m absolutely delighted to take on the role as the firm’s Chair for the South region. The South is an incredibly exciting and dynamic economy to operate in and KPMG continues to show strong growth in the region.
“One of the challenges we face, along with all regions outside London, is the need to bring the Government’s industrial strategy to life.”
He added: “But with the right support, business leaders across the region have both the knowledge and the resolve to do so.
“My focus is to ensure that our clients have access to the right solutions at the right time from all of KPMG’s specialists.”
Morgan first joined KPMG in 1988, and will continue his position as senior partner for Reading, which he has held since 2012.
