KPMG UK bolsters Scottish team with partner promotions

In their new roles, all three partners will work closely with KPMG UK’s Scotland senior partner, James Kergon, to drive growth for the firm in Scotland.

KPMG UK has promoted three colleagues in Scotland to partner, with Oliver Dockray, Martin Stephens and Philippa Sanderson all having become partners of the professional services firm this month.

Oliver Dockray has become partner and head of Tax Technology and Innovation following 13 years with the firm. Based in Glasgow, Dockray specialises in tax technology and has built a team of over 100 technology professionals to digitise tax for KPMG’s clients across Scotland and the UK.

Additionally, Martin Stephens is now a partner within KPMG UK’s Corporate Services Transformation team in FS Consulting after being with the firm for 15 years.

Based in Edinburgh, Stephens will support Insurance CFOs through “major” periods of change with programmes to deliver outcomes related to cost reduction, integration, or regulatory compliance, all underpinned by technology.

Meanwhile, Philippa Sanderson has also been promoted to partner, and she is currently a tax advisor leading KPMG’s Private Enterprise Tax across Scotland. 

As part of her promotion, Sanderson will now drive KPMG’s Private Enterprise Tax business in Yorkshire and the Humber. Along with her team, they will advise private businesses and their owners on all aspects of tax, in the UK and internationally.

All three partners will work closely with KPMG UK’s Scotland senior partner, James Kergon, to drive growth for the firm in Scotland.

Kergon said: “I’m really pleased to welcome Philippa, Martin and Oliver into KPMG’s partnership. All three are true leaders in their respective fields and bring our clients valued senior expertise.

“As they take this next step in their impressive careers, I look forward to seeing them continue to grow in their practice areas and deliver for our clients across Scotland.”

KPMG UK has now announced the appointment of 56 new partners in the financial year 2021.
