KPMG LLP, an international audit, tax, and advisory firm, has named Kevin Voigt managing partner of its Detroit and Grand Rapids offices beginning Oct. 1.
Voigt replaces Betsy Meter, who served as KPMG Michigan managing partner since February 2018. In this role, Voigt will be responsible for the strategic direction and growth of the offices, as well as ensuring that KPMG in Detroit and Grand Rapids continues to build careers for its professionals.
“Kevin is a respected business adviser and seasoned valuation professional whose strong local connections make him ideal for the role,” says Tandra Jackson, vice chair of growth and strategy at KPMG. “He leads by example and is committed to living out firm values and building a more diverse team where sharing ideas, perspectives, and candid feedback is encouraged.”
Based in Detroit, Voigt joined KPMG in 1995 and was admitted to the partnership in 2008. With 25 years of business valuation experience, he has proven himself as a leader by helping grow the regional EVS practice and the Detroit tax function, as well as serving as lead partner for several large clients. He also has a passion for mentoring and talent development, along with giving back to the local community.
“I am excited to lead a talented and dedicated group of professionals who have the skills and expertise to help clients solve a broad range of challenges such as business and digital transformations, mergers and acquisitions, restructurings, operational improvements, and numerous other issues,” says Voigt.
Voigt is a certified public accountant and is accredited in valuation from the American Institute of CPAs. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Michigan State University.
