Former union boss recruited by KPMG
Paul Howes has joined KPMG Australia’s advisory practice as a director following his resignation as national secretary of the Australian Workers’ Union in March.
In his new role Mr Howes will be responsible for consulting with clients in the areas of business transformation, transaction services and superannuation.
Mr Howes is also a former deputy chair of AustralianSuper and a director on multiple Commonwealth Government boards.
He will retain his directorship with not-for-profit group beyondblue, but has resigned all other previously held directorships and offices.
KMPG head of advisory John Somerville said Mr Howes will present KPMG’s clients with unique insights on “motivating workforces to drive productivity and ultimately improve business performance”.
“As the transaction market heats up and margins for error are thin, specialist consideration of people and workplace issues are critical for successful integrations – Paul can add great value here,” said Mr Somerville.
