Kristie Schubert (tax controversy and litigation) and Veronica Scott (commercial law) are the two newest partners at KPMG, forming part of a 94-strong cohort joining the partnership of the Australian arm of the global firm.

Ms Schubert was a lateral hire, while Ms Scott was promoted internally.


Women make up 43 per cent of the new partner cohort, and 18 per cent identified as culturally diverse. The appointments thus support, KPMG said in a statement, its Australian target of 40 per cent women in partnership by 2025 and 20 per cent culturally diverse partners by the same year.

Speaking about the promotions, KPMG Australia chief executive Andrew Yates said: “I am delighted to welcome such a diverse and energised group of new partners to our firm.

“Their insights, commitment and depth of experience will support our clients’ needs, wherever they are across the country. We’ve had a focus on building our regional footprint, and this year opened two new offices — in Townsville and Geelong — and moved into larger premises in Parramatta.

“Pleasingly, we have another strong line-up of internal promotions this year, demonstrating attractive career pathways within our firm. And the calibre of our external hires is also outstanding, bringing new backgrounds and experiences to the firm.”
