“Growth and Strategy spans across KPMG’s functional areas of Audit, Tax, and Advisory and Lisa’s career includes serving clients while leading teams in each of these practices,” said Paul Knopp, chair and CEO of KPMG US. “As we continue to lean into our multi-disciplinary model and deliver unparalleled service for our clients, Lisa’s deep experience, strategic thinking, and total firm approach make her a great leader to carry us forward.”

KPMG has opted not to follow EY’s lead in pursuing a split of its consulting and audit businesses.

Daniels added, “I am excited to work alongside the leadership team to continue to transform our firm and build on our long track record of success to better serve our teams, clients and communities.”

KPMG US has more than 35,000 people across 100+ offices in all 50 states. The firm has approximately $11.88 billion in annual revenue.
