Accounting firm KPMG LLP has announced the admission of 115 new partners into the U.S. firm.
Of the 115 partners, 26 are women. KPMG's goal is that 20 percent of the firm's partners will be women in the next five years.
Ninety-six of the new partners are in audit and risk advisory services, 17 in tax services, and two in client service support.
“These 115 individuals have distinguished themselves and earned this special achievement,” said Gene O'Kelly, chairman of KPMG. “Election to the KPMG partnership speaks to their leadership capabilities and the technical excellence they've demonstrated as they each contributed to the success of the firm.”
