Director, Public Sector
KPMG in the UK
Justine joined KPMG in 2001 from Industry where she was a Commercial Director. Based in Leeds since 2005, Justine led the development of our work across the Public Sector in the North, encompassing Local Government; the NHS; Higher Education and Social Housing until mid-2015. Since mid-2015, whilst keeping more than one foot in the North, her substantive role is a national one as the Market Director for KPMG's Education practice - responsible for the growth and development of our work in this sector, encompassing schools, 14-19, Higher Education and increasingly the wider skills agenda linked to Northern Powerhouse and the national devolution agenda. Justine is passionate about the evolving role of public service: its perception; the opportunity for more public / private crossover and the potential of working across an economic geography to change the way we currently deliver and receive services. She has a particular interest in the strategies cities and places can deploy to grow economically and the role of identity, leadership and collaboration to achieve that. Justine is also a Senior Independent Governor at Leeds Trinity University.
