KPMG joins Langley business scene

As Langley grows, a major accounting and business advisory firm has set up a new office here.

The Canadian arm of international firm KPMG officially opened its office in the Carvolth business park area in the 8500 block of 200th Street on Feb. 4.

The firm has taken over the top floor of a new office building.

On opening day, there were about 30 people working out of the office, but there was room to expand to between 80 and 100, said Don Matthew, a KPMG partner who will be heading up the new office.

The firm already had offices in Vancouver, Burnaby, Chilliwack, and Abbotsford, Matthew said at the opening event.

“Our market intelligence was telling us we had a hole that needed to be filled,” he said.

This office is intended to serve the Langley-Surrey area, where the business community is growing fast, along with the population.

Langley Township is one of the four municipalities that are expected to absorb the lion’s share of population growth in the next three decades. The firm had been looking at Langley for a few years before the office opened, Matthew said.

Staff will include some people brought from nearby offices, as well as new articling students who will be hired on as the local business expands.

All the KPMG offices coordinate together, so the Langley office will work with its counterparts nearby.
