New leadership revealed at KPMG Newcastle

Posted by on 11 Jan 2017

Big Four accountancy firm KPMG has announced a replacement for outgoing Senior Partner Mick Thompson, who will step down from the firm’s Newcastle Office when he retires in Spring next year.

Currently head of tax at the office, David Elliot will take over from Mick having joined the firm over nine years ago as a partner.

A home grown business adviser from Stocksfield, in the Tyne Valley, David has spent his 30 year career in Newcastle and has been instrumental in growing the company’s tax division.

Mr Elliot will continue to run KPMG’s tax team in the North East, while Mr Thompson will continue to work with audit senior partner Nick Plumb, serving the needs of the firm’s large and varied audit client base.

Speaking of his appointment to Office Senior Partner, David said: “Having played an active role in this vibrant, regional economy for many years, I am delighted to lead one of the area’s most prestigious firms.

“The excellent KPMG team based here on the Quayside and our superb client portfolio makes the North East an exciting and rewarding place to work.

“There’s a great deal going on within KPMG and we need to maintain the momentum of our Enterprise focus alongside our continued commitment to the public sector and listed company arenas, and ensure those leading the region’s organisations know of our appetite to work with them.

“In terms of projects, we are increasingly calling on an unrivalled combination of technology and colleagues to support clients addressing cyber security, IT transformation, customer experience issues, and of course the impact of the Brexit vote.”

KPMG’s Newcastle office is 150 strong, led by a partner and director group of 12 senior professionals.
