KPMG gets ready to flit

Senior managers from accountancy firm KPMG have viewed their new office in Glasgow.

Craig Anderson, current chair of KPMG in Scotland, Catherine Burnet, who was recently appointed to lead the firm’s business in Scotland when Anderson retires in October, and Phil Charles, senior partner in the company’s Glasgow office, visited St Vincent Plaza, where the firm has leased almost 40,000sq ft.

KPMG is due to move from its existing premises in West George Street to St Vincent Plaza in the autumn. Around 350 Glasgow-based staff will transfer to the new Grade-A premises. The firm also employs more than 175 people at its UK tax centre of excellence at 123 St Vincent Street.

Burnet said: “It’s going to be a great space for both staff and clients, with plenty of room to grow our business. We’re keen to share the benefits of our new offices with existing and prospective clients and support initiatives that will benefit them such as networking events.

“One of our key considerations when planning our move was ease of access for clients.”
