Deloitte US makes a number of CEO appointments

Deloitte US has appointed Lara Abrash as chair and CEO of Deloitte & Touche LLP, leading Deloitte's U.S. Audit & Assurance practice; Dan Helfrich as chairman and CEO of Deloitte Consulting LLP; and John Peirson as CEO of Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory, in each case effective June 2, 2019.

Abrash is currently deputy CEO of Deloitte US’ audit and assurance practice and a member of Deloitte US board of directors. She has 25 years of experience in public accounting, including 15 years as a partner.

Abrash said: “I am honoured to serve as the next chair and CEO of Deloitte & Touche LLP. The audit profession serves as a critical foundation to the financial markets — and I look forward to leading continuous transformation of our audit and assurance services to enhance quality and meet the evolving needs of the capital markets."

Helfrich is currently a principal with Deloitte Consulting LLP and leads the Government & Public Services practice. He said: “"This is such an exciting time as new business models and transformative technologies create unlimited opportunities for transformation. I look forward to working with our talented, diverse team as the chairman and CEO of Deloitte Consulting LLP to create positive change globally.”

Peirson currently serves as COO for Deloitte Consulting LLP. Previously he served as the COO for Risk and Financial Advisory and deputy CFO of Deloitte US. He said: "Uncertainty is a given in today's complex global business environment, but, when managed well, that 'uncertainty' can also breed innovation and disruption.

“I look forward to working alongside our professionals as we help clients manage cyber, transactional, regulatory, accounting, technology and financial crime, and other risks — changing the game in their industries while they do it."

Abrash will succeed Joe Ucuzoglu, who has been elected CEO of Deloitte US, and Helfrich will succeed Janet Foutty, who has been elected chair of the Deloitte US Board of Directors.
