KPMG 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 chief operating officer 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 S. Carande, who succeeds Doughtie as vice chair of Advisory; Jeffrey C. 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.

Doughtie and Ozanus also announced other key executives who will continue in their current leadership roles, including Sven Holmes as vice chair of legal, risk and regulatory; Rob Arning as vice chair of Market Development; and Bruce Pfau as vice chair of Human Resources and Communications.

“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,” said 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.”
