New managing partners appointed at KPMG and Matheson Ormsby Prentice Back  
Denis O'Connor and Liam Quirke have been appointed managing partners of leading accountancy and law firms, KPMG and Matheson Ormbsy Prentice (MOP), respectively.
DDenis O’Connor will take over as managing partner pf KPMG from Jerome Kennedy, who has led the firm through a period of significant growth and development since 1995, and completes his term of office on 30 April 2004.

Denis is head of KPMG’s Financial Services Group, leading a team of 350 professionals providing audit, tax and advisory services to Ireland’s leading financial institutions. He joined KPMG in 1981, was elected partner in 1993 and has worked with major clients across a range of industry sectors. Denis has particularly specialised in the insurance, banking and leasing sectors and has been responsible for the growth of KPMG’s services to the insurance sector.

Liam will succeed Donal Roche, who has held the position of managing partner for the past nine years.

Liam built his reputation as the founder and head of MOP's corporate tax practice, guiding it, in a little over a decade, from a standing start to the point where, today, it is significantly the largest tax practice amongst Irish law firms. IIt is consistently ranked by various leading publications alongside the Big Four International Accounting Firms as one of the best tax practices in Ireland and is widely used by domestic and international corporates (including many Fortune 500 Companies) as their preferred tax counsel in Ireland.

As head of Matheson Ormsby Prentice's foreign direct investment practice, Liam was the driving force behind the establishment of the firm's two offices in the United States which are located in Silicon Valley and New York.

Liam is a member of the Irish Prime Minister's Committee on International Banking and Treasury and was at the forefront in the construction of the statutory framework to facilitate international securitisation and repackaging transactions in Ireland for which business Ireland is now the pre-eminent jurisdiction in Europe. He spoke at 2003's annual Finance Dublin conference on tax harmonisation and its impact on international financial centres.

Liam will retain a fee earning role and continue as head of the firm's tax practice.
