National Industry Leader, Financial Services
Adrian leads KPMG's Financial Services practice and is inspired by the transformation that is occurring across the industry. It is the combination of regulations, Fintech, digital, platform strategies, low growth and government initiatives such as NPP & NBN that makes the environment so interesting. Adrian holds a unique perspective on risk. He was in Singapore before the Asian financial crisis, lived in San Francisco during the dot.com boom and has weathered the global financial crisis in downtown Sydney. “It has taught me to keep an eye on the future and be conscious of what could go wrong.” Adrian has more than 20 years’ experience in financial services, providing assurance and advising clients on culture, regulatory change, risk management, finance transformation, corporate governance, treasury and accounting.
It's not all work though. Adrian's passions are many and varied. First and foremost, he's a father of three. He also works with two charities that are dear to his heart. He is a keen sailor – he recently competed in his first Sydney to Hobart race – and a seasoned ocean swimmer. And as if that’s not enough, Adrian plays bass in a local rock band.
