Chicago-based Crowe Horwath (FY17 net revenue of $809.5 million) has reappointed Jim Powers as CEO. Powers’ CEO term has been extended to March 31, 2021.

“Under Jim’s leadership, Crowe has enjoyed a great deal of success from executing toward his vision of ‘Deep Specialization,’ ‘One Crowe’ and Crowe as a technology firm,” says Wendy Cama, chair of the board of directors. “Given this success, the board approached Jim about continuing as CEO, and we mutually agreed on a two-year term extension.”

Since the beginning of Powers’ tenure, the firm has increased its annual revenue by nearly 15% and increased its personnel by 18%. According to Cama, much of this growth and success can be attributed to a number of initiatives put in place under Powers.

“It has been a true privilege to serve as CEO, and I’m eager to keep working toward our future,” says Powers. “I’ve learned so much from this experience and am thrilled to continue during this exciting period as the industry incorporates technology into all that we do.”
