Toll Group has appointed former KPMG Asia Pacific chief operating officer Geoff Wilson to its board of directors.

Wilson becomes the eighth and final appointment to the Toll board following the rebuilding of the board this year.

Toll Holdings reported an annual loss of $1.43 billion last year. It is owned by Japan Post, who paid $6.5 billion for the group in 2015.

Wilson, who served 35 years with KPMG, is financially savvy and is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, which could prove important as Toll looks to turnaround its fortunes in the year ahead.

Toll Group’s chairman John Mullen welcomed Wilson’s appointment to the board.

"His deep knowledge and experience across multiple markets, including Japan, and his leadership of large, dynamic workforces will be invaluable to Toll’s transformation, governance and future growth agenda," Mullen said.

Wilson will also assume the role of chairman of Toll’s audit committee.

The Toll board now comprises Mullen, Wilson, Michael Byrne, Kunio Yokoyama, Tomohiro Yonezawa, Taneki Ono, Noboru Ichikura and Norio Wakasa.
