Steve Woodward, Managing Director, KPMG in Bermuda stated: “The Managing Directors of KPMG in Bermuda are proud to award the 2017 KPMG scholarship to Conor Lohan. Conor has shown a keen interest in Economics, accounting and business and has an excellent academic record. He is well on the way towards obtaining his Bachelor’s degree in Economics with a concentration in business.

“Conor has always enjoyed Economics and learning how individual business and markets thrive or struggle. He has excellent leadership qualities, which was an important factor for KPMG’s Scholarship Committee when considering his application.

“The Committee was also impressed by Conor’s passion for volunteering and his commitment to community services, his work ethic and his commitments to achieving his Chartered Professional Accounting designation, upon graduating from university and pursuing a MBA program in Accounting.”

Conor commented, “I am so honoured to be the recipient of the 2017 KPMG Scholarship and am excited to be in a position to start giving back to the firm in the future.

“What appealed to me most about the KPMG scholarship was having the opportunity and mentoring to study for and obtain my CPA and the wide breadth of positions offered within the firm for internships and full-time jobs.

“Through the KPMG scholarship and graduate programme, I now have a clear opportunity to enter a world-renowned firm that has the size and guidance procedures set in place for me to enter an industry that interests me and will allow me to excel with the firm.

“I hope to join KPMG in their Advisory or Financial Services team providing research and consulting services to local companies, helping them to operate to the best of their abilities and thrive in their industry.”
