KPMG Hungary has announced the appointment of two new partners as of October 1, 2023. Ildikó Takács is the new KPMG partner in the audit practice and Balázs Horváth is the new partner in the advisory practice.

Both professionals have made regional and global collaborations a daily practice in their day-to-day operations, and with their teams, they have developed and implemented forward-thinking digital solutions - all of which effectively support clients' work and success, ensure sustainable growth, and positively shape KPMG's firm culture and vision, the Big Four company tells the Budapest Business Journal.

Takács has been part of the KPMG team for 20 years. She played a leading role in the establishment of the KPMG Digital Audit Center, which is dedicated to supporting the digital transformation of the audit business. With her help, the audit area recently made a seamless transition to a completely new process management and documentation software, which represents another step forward in audit digitization and will further enhance the quality and efficiency of audit work. The department, which currently employs 80 people, also supports KPMG's global audit strategy internationally in the development and deployment of high-quality digital audit tools.

Horváth has been with KPMG since 2016, specializing in Shared Service Centres (SSCs) and financial process improvement. He established the SSC Consulting Center within the firm, which has now become not only a market leader but also a key connector in the domestic SSC sector. Under the leadership of Horváth, the CEE SSC Network was also established in 2022, which represents a significant potential for the export of knowledge and services - the network is now connected to potentially around 2,000 companies in five countries of the Central and Eastern European region.
