KPMG Names Three Directors for ‘Public Interest’ Panel, FT Says

KPMG Europe appointed three non- executive directors to sit on a newly established “public interest committee,” the Financial Times reported.

They are Steve Robson, a retired senior official at the U.K. Treasury; Tom de Swaan, a former finance chief at Dutch bank ABN Amro; and Alfred Tacke, a veteran German Economics Ministry official, the newspaper said, adding that each will receive 100,000 euros ($130,000) a year in fees.

A U.K. governance code introduced this year requires the country’s eight biggest audit firms to have non-executive directors, the FT said.
