Our People: Amanda Formosa

Amanda Formosa - Associate Director, Audit Services

I joined KPMG as an ACCA student eager to achieve my long-term goals of becoming an auditor and of experiencing work abroad through secondment opportunities. Since day one, I have been surrounded by people I can relate to and mentors that support me and want me to succeed. 

Through the tools provided by KPMG, I developed the necessary technical and analytical skills to help me successfully obtain my ACCA qualification and to continue to advance my career within the firm. Furthermore, KPMG believed in me and provided me with the opportunity to go on multiple secondments; working within the KPMG Calgary office in Canada and KPMG New York office in the USA. These secondment experiences, together with the exposure to local clients within various industries, have allowed me to grow both personally and professionally and to create a wonderful international network of colleagues and friends. 

After several years in this profession, I love that every day is still an opportunity for me to learn and expand my knowledge both through the quality training provided by the firm, as well as a result of the diversity of the clients I get to work with from across the globe. KPMG has also allowed me to develop my soft skills and provided a platform for me to deliver training both internally and externally through the courses offered by the KPMG Learning Academy

Each day I take pride both in the quality of work we deliver as a team to our clients, as well as in my role in mentoring others to help them develop and achieve their own goals.

KPMG is where you can achieve your true potential!
