Len Anderson

Developer, LSM 810

In 1979 it dawned on newly married Len that a regular job would be a good thing. And what could be more regular than accounting? Price Waterhouse (now PwC) generously gave me a start in the UK and in 1982 I qualified as a chartered accountant. After a couple of years in the UK automotive industry it was time to settle down and start a family, and Canada seemed like a fine place to do that. So, in December 1985 I started with Canadian firm Thorne Riddell which later became KPMG. I became a partner with the firm in 1993.
