Simon Faust

Director, Accounting & Process Advisory

KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft

As Engagement Director, I am primarily responsible for IFRS conversion projects and the introduction of new IFRS standards, in particular IFRS 15 and IFRS 16. I advise clients on transaction-based accounting issues, in particular in the PE environment and for start-ups, and I am a member of KPMG's Capital Markets Group. In this context, I also deal intensively with the accounting of share-based payments.

  • I graduated from Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg with a degree in business administration. I have been with KPMG since 2005 and have many years of experience in advising clients with extensive knowledge of international accounting (IFRS as well as US GAAP) and have supported numerous projects on IFRS conversion including the establishment of corresponding accounting processes in various industries as a project manager/engagement director. I have extensive project experience in connection with transaction-based issues in accounting (IPO and transaction preparations as well as post-deal integration) and lead projects to prepare accounting for corporate transactions (sale or IPO).

  • I am the regional contact for all consulting topics in finance and accounting in the region of Northern Bavaria.
