KPMG India Pvt Ltd, the local unit of global auditing and advisory giant KPMG, said on Wednesday that its deputy CEO Dinesh Kanabar, who has been serving this role for over four years, will be leaving the firm at the end of next month.
Kanabar has more than two and half decades of experience in advising the largest multinational companies in India.
“I have had a fruitful and fulfilling innings at KPMG India and was fortunate to be a part of a dynamic team. However, it is time for me to make time for myself and my family. I will be moving out to start my own venture and I wish KPMG and its people, who I admire greatly, every success,” said Kanabar.
Before joining KPMG in India, he was the deputy CEO at RSM & Co – a leading tax boutique in India. After the merger of RSM & Co with PwC, he headed the tax and regulatory practice of PwC India.
Kanabar has worked with several corporations, multinationals and Indian companies on entry strategy, fund raising, operating excellence, benchmarking, risk management. He has also worked closely with the government on matters relating to corporate, tax policy and tax administration.
“Dinesh helped rejuvenate the tax practice and the markets function in KPMG India,” said Richard Rekhy, CEO, KPMG India.
