KPMG in the Crown Dependencies is delighted to announce Theola Byrne has been promoted to Audit Director in their Jersey office. This promotion recognises the continuing development and growth of the firm within the Crown Dependencies, following four director promotions earlier this year.

Theola joined KPMG in 2014 and specialises in the audit of asset management structures including a focus on real estate, stemming from the in-depth experience she gained from servicing some of the key clients of KPMG in the Crown Dependencies. Theola has progressed within the firm and is regarded as a lead for our inclusion and diversity initiatives, as one of the founding members of the internal committee that implements them.

In 2018, Theola embarked on a secondment to the KPMG Cayman office where she worked on a wide range of asset management structures, bringing back with her a broad experience of the financial services ecosystem.

Dermot Dempsey, Head of Audit at KPMG in the Crown Dependencies, says, “Theola’s promotion reflects continued strong growth in our audit services across all financial services sectors. I am delighted to see Theola come through as an Audit Director, having played a key role in that growth. Our continued drive to deliver the best client service experience, audit quality at the core of everything we do and innovation in how we do it gives us confidence of further success for the future.”

Brian Bethell, Deputy Head of Audit, says, “Having worked with Theola on a number of clients and with wider department matters, this promotion recognises her contribution to the firm’s growth and people initiatives. As part of our leadership team Theola will be a great example to future leaders.”
