KPMG US has promoted 42 team member to partner-level in its advisory services division. The Big Four firm promoted a total of 119 people to partner across its audit, tax, and advisory service lines for the partner class of fiscal year 2021.

KPMG provides a full suite of advisory services, including offerings in corporate strategy and M&A, operations, risk and compliance, data and analytics, digital transformation, technology, and people and change.

Globally, KPMG’s advisory division brings in 40% of its approximately $30 billion in annual fees. Audit brings in nearly as much (38%), while tax services represent 22% of revenue. The advisory services division has been seeing solid growth in recent years, posting 7.9% growth in 2019 year-over-year compared to audit’s 3.7% growth, as clients have been upping their demand for digital transformation and technology services in particular.
