As a leader, Christa's aim is to bring the best of KPMG to the complex challenges of our clients so they can grow, transform and succeed. Investing in people to drive seamless experiences and make a real impact has been her commitment throughout her career at KPMG. “KPMG has supported me with endless opportunities to grow my career. For me, it has been both a launch pad and a landing. I haven’t felt the need to move elsewhere.”
In her role as National Managing Partner for KPMG Australia’s Management Consulting division, Christa strives to create a strong team culture with authentic leaders committed to developing the capabilities of our people and solutions. To Christa, delivery excellence and values are founded in trust. “Investing in our people is critical to our success. Building and maintaining clients’ trust is essential.”
Christa draws on her considerable experience to deliver assurance and advisory services to public sector and non-government organisations, with a strong focus in health, human services and Indigenous sectors. She is inspired by the people she works with as “together we pursue improved social and economic policy outcomes for Australians”.
For over 19 years, Christa has been a partner with the firm. She was the Chief Operating Officer of Management Consulting for 3 years and in July 2021, was appointed as National Managing Partner of the division. In 2017, Christa was elected to KPMG Australia’s Board, and is a Director of Arrilla Consulting.
