KPMG has selected its global head of mining Trevor Hart to chair its WA practice, with Matthew Woods stepping down from the role after just over two years.
Mr Hart will commence as chairman from tomorrow, according to a staff update seen by Business News.
He has been with the accounting and advisory firm for 30 years and an audit partner since 2000.
Mr Hart leads its mining business as both the Australian and global mining leader.
Mr Woods will continue as a partner in restructuring as well as being lead partner of the WA state government account.
He succeeded Keith Jones, who had the top job for 15 years.
