Jordan to join KPMG Europe

KPMG Jordan will join KPMG Europe (ELLP), bringing the number of member countries up to 18.

The firm in Jordan has five partners and more than 90 staff, and its addition will enhance KPMG Europe’s provision of audit, tax and advisory services across the Middle East.

ELLP joint chairman John Griffith-Jones and Rolf Nonnenmacher said by linking the firms together it will have greater impact in meeting the needs of its clients in what is one of the fastest growing regions in the world.

“Our clients and employees increasingly are more internationally focused…with even better access to international specialists in all industries, we are further strengthening our ability to support businesses that are based in Jordan, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia,” Griffith-Jones and Nonnenmacher added.

“The decision to join ELLP is to form an even stronger presence in the region which will bring new opportunities for both our clients and our people. This is a significant step in creating an integrated firm with the strength and resources necessary to compete effectively in the changing global economic environment,” KPMG Jordan's managing partner Hatem Kawasmy said.

KPMG Europe has more than 30,000 partners and staff across 120 offices with total revenues of €4.7bn ($6.6bn).

The other countries in ELLP include Armenia, Belgium, Georgia, Germany, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and the UK.
