Keri Fleming

New York-based Mazars USA, an IPA 100 firm, has hired Keri Fleming to succeed the retiring Julie Venkat as the firm’s chief people officer. Fleming’s role will include leading efforts to evolve the development of future leaders, build on the firm’s inclusion and diversity programs and continue to foster an environment of acceptance and respect.

Immediately prior to joining Mazars, Fleming was the chief HR officer for a large national manufacturing and retail organization. Previously, she spent 15 years at a Big 4 accounting firm where she focused on university recruiting, onboarding and assimilation, talent management, compensation and benchmarking, learning and development, internal communication, employee engagement, diversity and inclusion, and succession planning.

“Keri has deep experience that will be instrumental to our growth strategy,” says Mazars USA chairman and CEO Victor Wahba. “Her passion for driving performance, along with her expertise in talent acquisition, employee and organizational development, compensation planning and benchmarking, internal communications, and many other critical aspects of leading a high-performing human resources group, makes her an ideal addition to the Mazars team.”
