Paul Thompson

Director, Risk Assurance

KPMG Australia

Paul rejoined KPMG in late 2014 after spending 7 years in industry auditing risk and control from Nigeria to Costa Rica and almost everywhere else in between.

“What I never failed to appreciate was not only the immense beauty of each culture but also the unique challenge each brought to the work. It certainly gave me a perspective beyond the everyday Australia and made life interesting!“

Today, Paul leads our national Soft Controls team where he helps clients in all sectors challenge themselves on what the behavioural causes of risk and control failures are, and to get them talking about real actions to address these failures – cultural change.

Paul’s other great interest is aviation, fuelled by his yearning for adventure. “I obtained my commercial pilot's license some years back and when not travelling for work, l still like to be in the air, although these days, its now quality time with my young family discovering new places”.
