KPMG Names Leaders for Major Businesses and Operations

New York-based KPMG (FY14 gross revenue of $6.9 billion) announced the incoming leaders of the U.S. firm’s audit, tax and advisory businesses, as well as new heads of operations and innovation & enterprise solutions and other key roles. These appointments fill key positions in the leadership team formed by U.S. chairman and CEO Lynne Doughtie and deputy chairman and COO P. Scott Ozanus, who began their five-year terms as the firm’s top leaders on July 1.

The leaders of the firm’s three primary businesses are: Carl Carande, who succeeds Doughtie as vice chair of advisory; Jeffrey LeSage, who will continue in his role as vice chair of tax; and Scott Marcello as vice chair of audit. In addition, Laura Newinski has been named the firm’s vice chair of operations and Mike Nolan will assume the role of vice chair of innovation & enterprise solutions.

“These individuals are part of a leadership team that brings not just deep knowledge and experience but a proven understanding of how to adapt, innovate and swiftly execute in a marketplace that offers enormous opportunities for our clients and our firm,” says Doughtie. “I am incredibly excited about the tremendous momentum that KPMG has today. Our entire leadership team is well positioned to continue to serve our clients with the highest quality, grow our core businesses, and meet every challenge in a time of rapid change.”

The new leadership team will build on the strong foundation of success the firm has established, including a number of significant achievements in recent years. The firm continues to aggressively invest across a number of priority industries, including financial services, health care, industrial manufacturing, government and energy, and has recently completed a number of strategic acquisitions in areas such as business transformation, cyber security, customer analytics, digital and mobile technologies, and alternative investments.
