KPMG’s business in UAE split by partner infighting and coup attempt

KPMG’s business in the United Arab Emirates has been split by infighting, with the chief executive surviving an attempted coup after two senior partners raised governance concerns and were subsequently fired.

The accounting group’s Lower Gulf business was pitched into turmoil last week as a group of partners planned a secret ballot to determine whether Nader Haffar, KPMG’s chief in the region since 2018, had lost their support, according to current and former insiders.
