(Also read: Sasfin CEO opens up about dumping KPMG)

We have values, standards and ethics… We are working hard that this never happens again.

Nhlamu Dlomu, KPMG South Africa

We haven’t seen anything that suggests that our issues are systemic.

‘We’re sorry’ is never going to be good enough…

KPMG South Africa’s new CEO, Nhlamu Dlomu, has a huge task on her hands:

Restoring the disgraced auditing firm’s integrity and credibility.

Her appointment comes in the wake of Trevor Hoole’s resignation on Friday following the work KPMG did for the South African Revenue Service (Sars) and the Gupta family.

Dlomu was KPMG SA’s Head of People and Change.

She has 17 years of management experience in various roles.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Dlomu.

Nhlamu Dlomu, KPMG South Africa

We regret what has happened.

Nhlamu Dlomu, KPMG South Africa

We’re carefully listening to what people are saying to us.

Nhlamu Dlomu, KPMG South Africa

An enquiry would be appropriate… we want to be clear about what has happened…

Nhlamu Dlomu, KPMG South Africa

We employ 3500 people… I care deeply about their livelihoods… He [Trevor Hoole] would probably have said the same…

Nhlamu Dlomu, KPMG South Africa

We’re fully cooperating…

Nhlamu Dlomu, KPMG South Africa

I’m doing everything possible to make sure we hear the messages society is telling us.

Nhlamu Dlomu, KPMG South Africa

I’m going to make sure we have an experienced Head of Audit.

We’re engaging with Sars and Tom Moyane.
