Our Rich History


At KPMG, we’re extremely proud of our rich history.

2017 marks the 120th anniversary of our firm, and we’re honored to celebrate this milestone and our history of service to our clients, our communities, and each other!

Our culture makes KPMG unique, and it’s defined by the collective behaviors of each and every individual that makes up this great firm. Our people, past and present, are responsible for building a wonderful legacy... and creating KPMG’s story.

Our 120th anniversary is a special time for us to reflect on the critical role we’ve played in the capital markets we serve. For more than a century, KPMG has been committed to working collaboratively to deliver quality service and drive innovation for our clients. We are equally proud of the profound impact we’ve made in the communities in which we live and work since 1897.

We hope you will join us as we continue on our exciting journey.

The KPMG Story encompasses what we believe in, where we're going, and how we’ll get there. It includes our Purpose, Values, Vision, Strategy, and our Promise. Our story helps us make informed decisions as we respond to challenges and pursue new opportunities.

The KPMG Story binds us together, and helps us grow – individually and collectively – and it sets us apart from the competition. KPMG has a great story to tell, and we’re extremely proud of it. We encourage you to learn more about how you can become part of our story.

What will Your Story be at KPMG?

Impact with Purpose

We all have a purpose at KPMG. Explore yours.

KPMG is a firm with a rich history of doing great work and making a difference. Individually and as a firm, we inspire confidence and empower change in so many different ways. We truly believe that everyone is here for a purpose. Whether our purpose is to serve our clients directly or to help those who do, we all contribute to the bigger picture.

At KPMG, purpose is the difference that has always set us apart. Purpose is the difference between managing military inventory and delivering lifesaving aid to our allies. Between reconciling conflicting financial claims and helping bring hostages home. Between certifying election results and strengthening a young democracy. Between monitoring a cleanup and helping a nation heal after a tragedy. This difference in perspective has enabled us to inspire confidence and empower change for over 100 years, and it will for 100 more. Because at KPMG, purpose is the difference between doing our job and knowing why it matters.

Our Values

Acting with integrity

KPMG's core values illustrate our commitment to the highest principles of personal and professional conduct, guiding how our people relate to each other, what we expect of our clients and vendors, and what our clients, vendors and the marketplace should expect of us.

Our promise of professionalism

At KPMG, we are proud of our commitment to ethics and integrity and the way we have embedded our core values - including "Above All, We Act with Integrity" - into all of our business.

“What I like most about KPMG is the culture. It’s the mantra of Lead by Example. I’ve worked at three other firms before, and I always felt like you have a job and you do your job. And the one thing that I found really different at KPMG, and why I’ve stayed here for over nine years, is the people that I’ve worked with and for. They have truly been mentors and they have helped me to succeed.”
– Jack Umansky, Director - Advisory

Our Vision

To be the Clear Choice

At KPMG, our goal is not to be the biggest professional services firm. Our goal is to be the best professional services firm. And we define this in a very tangible way through our vision of being the Clear Choice.

For KPMG, being the Clear Choice means that:

  • Our people are extraordinary;
  • Our Clients see a difference in us; and
  • The public trusts us.

We believe that living our principles — and living the KPMG Story — will set us apart.

We hope KPMG will be your Clear Choice.

“I see people who I care about and who I want to work with sitting on either side of me. I’m from a very big family in Jamaica. When I left Jamaica, that was taken from me. You all give me an opportunity to recreate the family environment I have at home, and being able to call you my friends, my family, my brothers, and my sisters is special.”
– Nick Washington, Manager - Audit

We will continue to live our story every day.
