KPMG Breaks Ground on New Learning, Development and Innovation Center

ORLANDO – Professional services firm KPMG broke ground in May 2017 on a new Learning, Development and Innovation Center at Orlando’s Lake Nona community. Slated for completion in late 2019, the 55-acre, $430-million facility is expected to create 80 jobs in Orlando and another 250 statewide and bring thousands of KPMG employees to central Florida for training.

With offices throughout the U.S. and in more than 150 countries, KPMG provides innovative business solutions and audit, tax and advisory services to many of the world’s most prestigious organizations.

This campus is our firm’s largest capital investment ever. More than that, it’s an investment in our people. Today marks a major milestone toward creating a world-class environment that inspires our professionals to achieve their fullest potential and helps enable our firm to attract and retain the best talent. Nowhere else is that dual focus more evident than in our growing presence in Florida where Gov. Scott, state and local officials and the Lake Nona community have created a highly collaborative, forward-thinking environment.

Chairman and CEO, KPMG US
