I am Vice Chair and US Consumer Industry Leader for Deloitte LLP. I lead the overall strategic direction for our industry practice, including audit, consulting, tax, and advisory services, and have nearly 30 years of experience providing financial, operational, and information systems advisory and assurance services to US and global clients in the consumer products, manufacturing, chemicals, retail & distribution, and transportation, hospitality & services sectors. However, my real passion is collaborating with my colleagues, clients, and alliance relationships to reach a deeper understanding of consumer industry trends and the evolving values and needs of the consumer. Together, we can fuse profit with purpose, become better corporate citizens and shape a better tomorrow for people, the planet and shared prosperity. Prior to my Consumer Industry role, I led Deloitte’s Controllership Services practice and continue to serve as a member of our US Finance Transformation leadership team. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Finance and Accounting from the University of South Florida.
