With more than 35,000 employees in more than 90 offices across the U.S., KPMG LLP has rightfully earned its place among accounting’s Big 4. KPMG, the fourth largest accounting firm in the U.S. by revenues, is the independent U.S. member firm of KPMG International Limited, a private English company limited by guarantee, whose member firms can be found in 143 countries and territories and have approximately 265,000 professionals. KPMG’s service lines are divided into audit, tax, and advisory, with industry-specific focus in each.

In the U.S., KPMG works for clients in numerous industry sectors, including aerospace and defense, alternative investments, asset management, automotive and transportation; banking and capital markets; building, construction, and real estate; consumer and retail; energy and chemicals; financial services; government and public sector; healthcare and life sciences; industrial manufacturing; insurance; Japanese Practice (which works closely with KPMG member firms in Japan to serve Japanese companies doing business in the U.S.); media and entertainment; private equity; private enterprise; public investment management; sports; technology; telecommunications; and U.S. international corridors (developed countries and emerging markets).

In addition to being one of the top firms by revenues, KPMG LLP has been inducted into Training magazine’s hall of fame, singled out for placing among the top 10 in Training's annual top 125 companies rankings for four consecutive years. And in 2023, KPMG ranked No. 38 on Fortune’s annual 100 Best Companies to Work For list, after ranking No. 41 in 2022. KPMG also regularly appears on People’s Companies That Care, DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity, and Seramount’s 100 Best Companies for Working Mothers and Best Companies for Dads lists.

The history of KPMG dates back to 1870, when British accountant William Barclay Peat hung his shingle in London. In 1911, Peat reached across the Atlantic, joining forces with New York's Marwick, Mitchell and Company to form Marwick, Mitchell, Peat & Co. After separating for a short while, the two firms re-established their partnership in 1925 and became Peat, Marwick, Mitchell. This was shortened to Peat Marwick International in 1978. Meanwhile, in 1979, a group of international accounting firms in Western Europe and the U.S. made a merger of their own, forming Klynveld Main Goerdeler (KMG). KPMG Peat Marwick was born in 1987 when KMG and Peat Marwick merged, the accounting industry's first (but not last) mega-merger; its name was further shortened to KPMG in 1995.
