LeSage re-appointed as vice chairman of KPMG’s US tax practice
Jeffrey LeSage has been re-appointed as vice chairman of KPMG’s US tax practice while Laura Newinski – who had been the national managing partner for tax – has moved to a new department.
Newinski will now become the vice chair of operations for KPMG. Her replacement in tax will be Will Williams, who has previously been employed as the national leader of the firm’s economic and valuation services practice.
Williams and LeSage will lead KPMG’s team of tax practitioners, which numbers almost 6,500 partners and other professionals across the federal, international, state and local tax practices as well as speciality areas such as M&A, economic and valuation services and global mobility services.
