“I’m extremely excited to have the chance to re-build our business in Azerbaijan,” said Vugar. “I see many opportunities for KPMG across Advisory, Audit and Tax. We also need to expand relationships with state owned companies and ministries as well as private companies. Starting a business from scratch is very motivating and I look forward to building up a client base and a good team of people to help me on this journey”.
