PKF Brisbane acquires firm Kim Partners
26 Feb 2019
PKF Brisbane has announced the acquisition of a Brisbane boutique firm as it looks to better service the Asian market.
PKF Brisbane has acquired Kim Partners, led by Ryan Kim, who will now trade under the PKF brand and brings the leadership group up to six partners and two directors.
“I established Kim Partners in 2013, as I saw an opportunity to provide a personalized service to clients who require specific language skills and cultural knowledge,” said Mr Kim. “As my clients have grown, they increasingly need specialist services and advisers on the ground in Asia. From that perspective, joining PKF made a lot of sense”. Mr Kim has also been appointed director of Asia business, and will lead PKF Brisbane’s growing Asia Desk, which is capable of servicing clients in Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, Tagalog & Bahasa Indonesian.
PKF Brisbane chief executive Larn Mulligan welcomed the acquisition. “Kim Partners is a firm that is known for servicing the Asian business market in Brisbane. By introducing Kim Partners’ clients to the full suite of services PKF can provide here and abroad, we can help them to maximize their potential and help Ryan to build his portfolio,” said Mr Mulligan.
“Throughout 2019 we will continue to identify firms that align with our culture and strategy, with a view to them joining and growing with PKF.”
