Change at the top at KPMG’s Bristol office as it brings in new regional senior partner role

March 24, 2021

Global accountancy group KPMG has combined the top jobs in its Bristol and Plymouth offices, with Ian Brokenshire, currently senior partner in Plymouth, taking up the role next week.

Ian, pictured right, replaces Bristol Andrew Hodgson, pictured below, who returns to a full time mergers and acquisition (M&A) advisory role after five years as Bristol senior partner. 

Ian has worked with clients and colleagues across the region, including Bristol, for more than three decades, with a particular focus on advising private enterprise businesses.

Alongside his Plymouth leadership role, Ian will now lead the Bristol office’s 550-strong team of partners and staff, advising on tax, audit, deal advisory and consulting matters.

Ian said: “It’s an absolute honour to take on the leadership of the talented team in Bristol. As organisations recover from the Covid-19 crisis we have a crucial role to play in driving up the region’s economic recovery across all businesses, from established employers to entrepreneurial start-ups and scale-ups.”

Andrew Hodgson added: “It has been a privilege to lead the Bristol office for KPMG. Ian knows the Bristol and wider South West market inside out and he’ll be a fantastic asset for our business. 

“At a personal level, I’m really excited about getting stuck back into the M&A market across the region, which is booming, driven by the changing tax landscape and our clients’ renewed optimism as Covid-19 recedes.”

KPMG’s Bristol office on Queen Square works with the region’s leading businesses and public sector organisations. The team, which has grown substantially in recent years, works across all business sectors, including technology, healthcare, renewables, engineering, consumer and financial services.
