Like the other Big 4 firms, KPMG has partners that are at the top of the food chain. But how many do they have?
I looked closely at last year’s KMPG stats and found out that there are total of 12,321 KPMG partners worldwide (with 27% women and 14-15% from different ethnic backgrounds).
I have managed to find out the number of KPMG partners in:
- The UK
In this article, I’ll uncover:

Total Number of Partners at KPMG
KPMG, a global professional management firm, provides various services to its clients in the fields of:
The company operates under multiple partners or principals. They bring new projects, hire aspiring talent, and, by doing so, grow the size and revenue of the firm.
The partners are usually current employees at KPMG who, after years of hard work and dedication, are offered this position. But not everyone is lucky!
Only a few will stand out from the crowd and get this chance.
Jon Holt, Chief Executive of KPMG in the UK, said: “I’m delighted to recognize the hard work and talent of our people through these promotions. The breadth of our expertise enables our firm to support our clients with their most complex challenges, which is more important than ever in the current economic and geopolitical climate.” (Source)

In the US, KPMG proudly has a strong representation of female partners. Here, over 23.5% of women partners are working in its different offices.
Not only that, but the firm continues to promote diversity in the Asia Pacific region. It has over 22% female partners. This seems reasonable evidence to suggest that KPMG really does proactively empower women in leadership roles in diverse cultures and markets.

While in the UK, approximately 14% of KPMG partners come from ethnic minority backgrounds, and only 2 of them are black! (Source)
