Mat joins the Board effective from 2020 having worked with KPMG for 30 years. Whilst Mat is a chartered accountant, his experience at KPMG has largely focused on Merger & Acquisition (M&A) activity specialising in due diligence. This has meant Mat has had exposure to some of Australia’s largest M&A deals looking at transformational transactions that are complex and often associated with large scale change and high profile events. Fortunately this has given Mat experience of working with some of Australia’s largest Businesses and State Governments. He brings skills around team leadership having been a Partner at KPMG since 2007 and has an appreciation of key cultural features of successful teams.
Mat has three children and he is looking forward to supporting Variety’s focus on helping children.
