In his new role, Tam will help the KPMG Tax Practice expand its marketplace presence in Southern California. He will also provide tax services to multinational clients investing outside as well as inside the United States, including clients from China.

Tam brings with him to KPMG over 23 years of Big Four experience as a tax professional.
