Doughtie elected as US chairman and CEO of KPMG
Lynne Doughtie has been elected as KPMG’s US chairman and CEO, becoming the first woman to hold both positions. Scott Ozanus will continue to serve as US deputy chairman and COO.
Doughtie will continue to serve KPMG’s advisory business until July 1, when she takes up her new position. She has numerous achievements to her name at the firm, including launching the firm’s audit practice 30 years ago.
Ozanus joined KPMG in Dallas in 2002 after more than 20 years at Arthur Anderson. By 2005, he had taken up the management of the firm’s three largest businesses in the southwest region, and was made vice chair of the firm’s tax practice in 2010.
Since that time, the tax practice’s growth has outstripped the rest of the Big 4.
