A new senior partner appointed to lead the firm's Nottingham and Leicester offices.
Professional services firm KPMG has appointed Marc Abrams to run its East Midlands practice as Senior Partner of its Leicester and Nottingham offices. Marc succeeds Ian Borley, who is stepping down from the role ahead of retirement in April after nearly 35 years with the firm.
Marc has been with KPMG for 11 years, and is responsible for the leading the firm’s tax practice in the East Midlands. He has advised on some of the region’s highest profile transactions in recent years and worked with a range of businesses from privately owned to listed, his advice covering both company and shareholders’ taxes.
Marc commented: “I’m thrilled to have been appointed to lead KPMG’s East Midlands practice. Over the last 11 years, I have seen first-hand the tremendous ability that exists across the 200+ talented individuals that make up our vibrant local practice and the fabulous range of ambitious businesses within the East Midlands. Being an active and visible member of the local business community continues to be a key part of KPMG’s regional strategy in the East Midlands. I’ve got big shoes to fill, but I’ll be working closely with Ian until he retires in April.”
Karl Edge, Chair for KPMG in the Midlands, added: “Marc is absolutely the right person to take over the reins and build on Ian’s legacy. He has been responsible for the successful growth of our tax practice in the East Midlands over the past decade. Under Marc’s leadership, our tax practice in the East Midlands has achieved double digit growth every year for the past six years and he has developed a hugely talented team of people.
“Ian has done a fantastic job of leading our East Midlands offices over the past five years. He’s been extensively involved in the local business community, and led the East Midlands practice to achieve consistent growth year-on-year.”
Ian Borley commented: “Whilst I’ll be sad to leave KPMG after so long, I’m delighted to have handed over the reins in the East Midlands to such a talented and hard-working individual as Marc, who’s also a really nice bloke!”
