Lynne Doughtie’s five-year reign as chairman and CEO of KPMG US came to an end on June 30, and her successor, Paul Knopp, wasted no time today appointing some KPMGers to extra special positions within the firm.
KPMG today announced the leaders of the U.S. firm’s Audit, Tax and Advisory businesses, as well as the new heads of Growth & Strategy and Operations and other key appointments to the leadership team formed by U.S. Chair and CEO Paul Knopp and Deputy Chair and Chief Operating Officer Laura Newinski, who began their five-year term as the firm’s top leaders on July 1.
The leaders of the firm’s three primary businesses are: Carl Carande, who is continuing as Vice Chair of Advisory; Greg Engel, who succeeds Jeffrey C. LeSage as Vice Chair of Tax; and Scott Flynn, who succeeds Frank Casal as Vice Chair of Audit. In addition, Tandra Jackson has been named Vice Chair of Growth & Strategy, and Will Williams succeeds Newinski as Vice Chair of Operations.
Additionally, four key leaders are continuing in their roles on the management team: Darren Burton, Vice Chair of Human Resources; Lisa Madden, Vice Chair of Risk Management; Tonya Robinson, Vice Chair and General Counsel – Legal, Regulatory, and Compliance; and Claudia Saran, Vice Chair of Culture.
