About Hugh McKenzie FCA

Hugh has over 35 years of public practice and leadership. He was a Partner in the KPMG Private Enterprise Division for over 20 years, before retiring from this role to work as a consultant to the firm and pursue other interests. His current specialty is as a business advisor in the areas of management, business planning, succession and estate planning and risk management.

Hugh is a previous Chairman of the Tasmanian Regional Council at the ICAA and still an active member of that Council. He is also an Alderman of the Launceston City Council, Chairman of Cornerstone Youth Services, a Director of Primary Health Tasmania and a Director of Australian Pacific Airports (Launceston) Pty Ltd.

Based in Launceston, Hugh has been a member of the Council since its inception. He is eager to contribute to ensuring Chartered Accountants Australia New Zealand ANZ maintains its position as one of the pre-eminent accounting bodies in the state and grows to meet the changing needs of our profession. He firmly believes globalisation is very much a part of everyday professional life and its impact on the regions will be just as profound (with subtle differences) on regional Australia as it is in the major cities and is keen that Tasmania is front and centre and influencing the changes as they are unfolding.
