Promotions in 2019 and bringing the future to our clients
Earlier this year KPMG launched Lighthouse Luxembourg, an investment in data-driven technology and technology-driven profiles. Lighthouse is a dedicated service line for these technologies to help clients maximize customer experience, reduce costs, manage risk, and optimize their operating models. Continued investment in new profiles with strong capabilities in technology such as data scientists, software engineers, and consultants is a vital part of this area of the business. Our clients need to be prepared for a future that will be driven by technology in a world of disruption and uncertainty where growth areas such as sustainable finance will become increasingly relevant.
This year saw a total of 436 people promoted, almost one-third of the total staff. KPMG Luxembourg’s Head of People, Thierry Ravasio, commented: “Our investment in technology is powered by an investment in technology-driven profiles, and by the development of the technology skills of our people. At KPMG, we empower our people to embrace technology and contribute their ideas. We are proud of what our people have achieved in this space, with some staff ideas transforming into actual client projects. Our people are and will always be our most valuable asset.”
KPMG Luxembourg currently has over 1,750 staff.
