Promotions at KPMG

KPMG have made a number of promotions within their cross-island audit team.

Shaun Farley and Ben Seymour-Smith have been promoted to Audit Director and Associate Director respectively.

Mr Farley is returning to the island from a secondment to KPMG in the Cayman Islands. In his new role he will be focusing on audit and assurance services for KPMG’s local fiduciary and other types of regulated clients.

"I am eager to work closely with our outstanding leadership team to grow our market presence and to provide the highest quality service to our client base," he said.

“I am thrilled with the opportunity to continue to support our clients as they grow and face challenges both locally and across the globe," Mr Seymour-Smith commented. "I look forward to adding to our senior management team as we expand our audit practice from the strong base that we have established over the last few years.”

In Guernsey, Simon Guilbert has returned from five years in San Francisco as part of the US Asset Management practice, as Audit Director while Fiona Babbé has been promoted to Associate Director.

Commenting on the promotions, Andrew Quinn, the CI firm’s Managing Director and Head of Audit, said: “These promotions are great news for our people and clients and will help us continue the strong growth we have achieved over recent years. 

"Both Shaun and Simon trained and qualified as Chartered Accountants with KPMG in the Channel Island and to see them now join our Board is very fulfilling.”

Audit Partner Dermot Dempsey added: “I am delighted to welcome back Shaun and Simon who return to us after successful secondments at KPMG in Cayman and San Francisco respectively where they worked on global Private Equity and Real Estate clients. This fantastic experience will complement the strong existing Channel Island leaders we have in these asset classes.”
