Floris Schuring will retire as Managing Partner of KPMG in Ukraine on 28 February 2014 to assume a position with KPMG International. He will remain based in Kiev. Floris will be succeeded by Andrey Tsymbal, currently Head of Audit for KPMG in Ukraine.
Floris joined KPMG in Ukraine in 1999 after previously working in Brazil and the Netherlands, and held various senior managerial roles before he was appointed Managing Partner in October 2009. He has driven industry specialization, leadership and employee engagement. Under Floris’s leadership KPMG expanded its presence in Ukraine to three offices with approximately 350 staff and a client base that includes some of the premier multinational and national companies operating in Ukraine.
Floris Schuring said: I am proud of the people I work with. I have seen many changes in the business environment over the almost 15 years that I have lived and worked in Ukraine. What stays the same is the level of highly dedicated and qualified Ukrainians on our staff. Clients often praise the spirit and commitment of KPMG people. While they are essentially buying services from KPMG, what they are really getting is a professional relationship and KPMG’s talent to transform complexity and change into opportunity.”
Andrey Tsymbal joined KPMG in November 1997 and was admitted to the partnership in 2006. During 2002-2003 Andrey worked on secondment at KPMG’s offices in Johannesburg, South Africa. Andrey holds a degree in Business and Economics from American University in Moscow, an MBA degree from Waynesburg College, Pennsylvania, USA, and a Master’s of Science degree (Engineering and Physics) from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. He is a Fellow of the ACCA and a certified auditor in Ukraine.
Commenting on his successor Floris Schuring said: I am delighted that Andrey Tsymbal was chosen to succeed me. With him we have a seasoned and well-prepared successor who, I’m sure, will lead KPMG to new heights. I will work closely with Andrey during the next few months to ensure a seamless transition.
