Peter Liddell

Partner, Global Operations Centre of Excellence Lead

KPMG Australia

As well as a Partner in KPMG Australia’s Management Consulting practice, Peter is also KPMG’s Global Operations Centre of Excellence Lead. For more than 30 years he has worked with clients across the Asia Pacific region to help them enhance their operational and financial performance.

Peter has designed and run large scale transformation programs that have driven value throughout the clients’ portfolios by accelerating opportunities to mitigate excessive business complexity and unnecessary operational costs, whilst helping them to position for growth and in accessing new markets. His key areas of expertise include operational strategy; supply chain and logistics advisory; business process analysis, improvement and redesign; and project, change and risk management.

Peter has worked with a range of clients across many industries with his key expertise being within the Life Sciences (Consumer Healthcare Products, Medical Devices & Pharmaceuticals), Food and Beverage, Retail, Industrial Manufacturing, Automotive, Telecommunications, Transport and Logistics sectors. For a number of years, he also held the position of Head of Supply Chain for KPMG Asia Pacific.

While Australia will always be home for Peter, he and his family spent three years living in Shanghai between 2012 and 2015, where Peter worked with the firm’s China practice to support multinational clients in the development of their China and Asia market entry strategies and to help them realign their global and regional supply chains.

Outside of work, Peter enjoys spending time with his young family and the occasional game of golf, but after his time in China he has returned to Australia with a passion for karaoke.
