Partner in Charge, People & Change
Transforming organisations to achieve better outcomes for the business, staff and clients has been a key motivator for Stefanie for over 15 years. “What drives me is making a difference with the work that we do, either employees having a better work experience or an organisation managing a change program successfully that has a downstream impact on product or service delivery,” she says. Stefanie is Partner in Charge for KPMG's People and Change practice. Her experience covers organisational transformation, change management, strategic human resource consulting, finance and human resources business process re-engineering, and systems implementation projects in Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Stefanie joined KPMG in 2000 and left to work in the US, then returned to the firm in 2009. She became a partner in 2012. Clients with a focus on social justice are of particular interest, including police, corrections, child protection, and human services. “Fundamental to our success is our collaborative network and sharing knowledge and opportunities,” she says. Stefanie spends her time outside work with her husband and two children, and indulging her love of blue grass music and movies. “My side passion is music and film. I have a Pink Floyd poster in my office!” she says.
