 — 1 minute read

KPMG Australia has this week announced the appointment of new risk consulting partners who all specialise in the financial service.

Former global head of financial crime transformation at Westpac, Chris de Wit, joins KPMG as partner in governance, risk and controls advisory.

With over 25 years of experience in risk management and assurance experience in banking, Mr de Wit specialises in analysing, designing and transforming risk operating models.


Meanwhile, Kat Conner – formerly of Promontory Financial Group – joins KPMG as risk, strategy and technology partner.

Ms Connor has held senior role in the banking and insurance industries over the last 18 years and specialises in risk and regulation.

The appointments follow the additions of fellow risk consulting partners Richard Donaldson and Sue Bradford earlier this year.

“We are delighted to recruit such high-quality individuals as Chris and Kat, following the appointments of Richard and Sue and they will add considerable expertise to our already strong and growing risk management and consulting teams,” KPMG partner in charge, risk strategy and technology, Rob Warren, said.

“The Financial Services sector faces significant challenges and opportunities in areas such as risk strategy, risk governance and operating models, risk culture and conduct, control environments and regulatory driven transformation.

“This recruitment bolsters KPMG’s capacity to meet growing industry demand.”
