SELEBI-PHIKWE: BCL liquidator Nigel Dixon-Warren has resigned from KPMG after 25 years of service to focus specifically on the BCL Mine liquidation. September 30 will be his last day with the firm where he served as a senior partner.
All his clients’ commitment would be transitioned to other KPMG Botswana partners and the firm is expected to announce the new leadership in due course.
The liquidator, who confirmed the resignation said he would, however, continue with the Mine’s liquidation because liquidation is a personal appointment not the company’s. “I want to focus on my liquidations, specifically BCL. It is a good thing because it means I would not be distracted by my job as KPMG managing partner,” he said.
He said this does not mean that his undeterred attention to BCL liquidation would speed up the process, but that the resignation would allow him time to rest a bit.
“I have been working seven days a week since October 2016 to cover both jobs. Now I hope to work five days a week,” he said. KPMG
“Although we are sad to see Nigel move on from the firm, we understand and respect his decision and wish him all the best. We look forward to welcoming him into our KPMG alumni network,” she said.
Dlomu said Dixon-Warren has been the firm’s primary point of contact for tax and advisory services in Botswana. She assured KPMG clients that the firm’s work remains unaffected and it is business as usual. “KPMG, both regionally and internationally, continue to support our colleagues in Botswana and will ensure that our work and commitment to our clients continue at the highest of standards.”
