KPMG has appointed Harry Mears to lead its social housing team with effect from 1 April 2016. Harry will succeed Chris Wilson, who has led the firm’s housing association practice for ten years.
Harry is an Associate Partner at KPMG and has worked with housing associations for 18 years. Harry will focus on continuing to provide a market leading service to existing clients, as well as growing the practice as the needs of the sector change and develop.
Chris has decided to retire from KPMG and will be leaving the firm in September.
Harry commented: “I am taking on the leadership of KPMG’s successful housing association practice at a time of significant change for housing associations and the housing sector as a whole. I look forward to working with colleagues across KPMG’s local government and private sector housing teams to help our clients respond strategically to the emerging challenges and opportunities ahead.”
Chris said “I am delighted to be leaving the housing practice in such good hands, and wish Harry and KPMG every success in the future.”
KPMG is the leading Big Four firm working with large housing association clients across audit, tax and advisory.
