Partner, Advisory, Forensic
Matthias is Partner at KPMG and leads the Swiss Forensic Team in the German Speaking Area. He has over 20 years working experience in Forensic (10 years) and Audit (12 years). During his employment in public accounting for two “Big 4” Audit Companies, he followed the classic career path from Audit Assistant to Head of Audit Department. He was tasked with audit engagements in both, Switzerland as well as abroad. After having founded and managed a consulting company specialized in forensic services, he re-joined KPMG in 2009. Within Forensic, he is specialized in cross-border and domestic investigations, fraud risk management and Compliance Management. As Expert Witness for insurance companies, law enforcement bodies and Courts he combines his broad experiences in both, public and Forensic accounting. His considerable applied working knowledge in different accounting concepts and frameworks (IFRS, U.S. GAAP, Swiss GAAP FER, Swiss Code of Obligations) and internal controls systems (in accordance with Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Sect. 404 and Art. 728a Swiss Code of Obligations) round off his professional experience. Matthias was elected as a Commercial Judge (“Fachrichter”) at the Commercial Court of Canton Berne (“Handelsgericht”). As a local lead partner Matthias is also the “Family Doctor” for all issues of his customers in the region Bern.
