KPMG brings in top people to lead new talent centre

It also has announced the appointments of a new head of people, head of reward and head of people operations.

Caroline Hill joins KPMG in the UK as head of people for audit and KBS. Hill, previously people & strategy officer at Wesleyan, will be a member of the audit executive team and will report to KPMG’s UK chief people officer, Kevin Hogarth, who joined the firm in November 2020.
