KPMG Europe unveils Public Interest Committee

KPMG Europe (ELLP) has appointed three independent non-executives who will together form a new Public Interest Committee.

Alfred Tacke, Steve Robson and Tom de Swaan have been appointed to the committee which will have responsibilities across the combined ELLP group of firms.

Key roles of the committee will be enhancing governance and transparency, strengthening confidence in audit quality and extending communications with a range of stakeholders.

Robson is currently working as director of Xstrata and the Financial Reporting Council, de Swaan is a board member at Zurich Financial Services and a non-executive board member at GlaxoSmithKline and Tacke is a member of the advisory committee of the Deutschland Fund in the Ministry of Economics in Berlin.

The Public Interest Committee will work alongside an existing internal sub-committee of the ELLP board, the Quality and Risk Committee, which has a similar remit. It will be responsible for overseeing the public interest aspects of the decision making of KPMG Europe LLP and its related entities including the management of reputational risks.
