Big 4 firm KPMG has announced that the leader of its audit practice in Minneapolis, Tim Forstad, has been named the new MP of the 500-person office, replacing George Kehl, who is retiring.

Forstad had served as PIC of the audit practice in Minneapolis and Des Moines for the past two years. He’s been a partner in KPMG since 1998 and has worked in San Francisco, Taipei and Amsterdam. His expertise is in audit and SEC services for food and consumer product companies.

“I am excited to lead a talented and dedicated group of professionals who have the skills and expertise to help clients solve a broad range of audit, tax and advisory-related issues like acquisitions, restructurings, business transformations and many other issues,” Forstad said in a statement.

Over the past nine years, KPMG’s Minneapolis has grown from 336 to more than 500 employees.

“Tim is a respected leader and seasoned audit professional whose global industry expertise and strong local business connections make him ideal for the role,” said John Kunasek, KPMG’s vice chairman of clients and markets, in a statement.
