Professional services firm KPMG has taken occupation of four floors at the grade II listed 66 Queen Square, a prestigious redevelopment in the centre of the city.
The firm’s first office was located in Queen Square nearly 200 years ago, trading under the name John Moxham.
KPMG employs 450 people in the city. Located right in the heart of the city, the office combines the Georgian elegance of Queen Square and an adjoining new, open plan office. 66 Queen Square offers the best of both worlds – a modern office space in an historical setting.
Commenting on KPMG’s move, Andrew Hodgson, senior partner in Bristol, says: “The building combines the best of old and new. To be back in the location where KPMG started in Bristol is fantastic.
“We are also really excited to offer an Enterprise space in the building – an area for clients to use as a drop-in space when they’re in the city with time to kill between meetings.
“While Bristol has grown from a bustling port to a thriving cosmopolitan melting pot of industry, culture, food & drink, our commitment to the city hasn’t changed.
“We take our responsibilities to our local community seriously. Our ambition to always be at the heart of the city goes beyond the physical location of our office and extends into every area of the business community, the public sector, charities and the region’s rich cultural and social scene.”
