"The alternative investments market in the Southeast is growing and will continue to expand over the next few years and in response, KPMG is investing in resources to meet that need," said Al Fichera, national leader, alternative investments, audit.

Cross is one of several account relationship directors that KPMG will be bringing on board in strategic cities around the U.S., as the firm continues to expand its AI practice.
