Deloitte elects new global CEO

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) has announced that Barry Salzberg has been elected to the position of global chief executive officer, DTTL. Salzberg will assume his new role and responsibilities on June 1, 2011, the start of the new fiscal year.


Salzberg succeeds Jim Quigley, who is completing his term, and who will transition into a senior client service role as a senior partner in the Deloitte U.S. firm on June 1, 2011. Salzberg’s leadership appointment is part of a rigorous and comprehensive nomination and member firm partner ratification process that occurs every four years and includes all member firms of the DTTL worldwide network.


As the new DTTL CEO, Salzberg’s responsibilities will encompass working across a network of 53 member firms operating in 150 countries, with more than 170,000 people worldwide.


During his more than 30-year tenure at the Deloitte U.S. firm, Salzberg, 57, has built an impressive record of success through a variety of leadership roles. In 2007, he was elected to his current position as CEO of Deloitte LLP in the United States, where he has balanced building the business with growing talent through successful transactions like acquiring technology consulting firm BearingPoint's government operations, and a relentless investment in talent through initiatives like Deloitte University, a US$300 million state-of the-art learning and development facility opening later this year in the United States.


Previously, Salzberg held the roles of U.S. managing partner, as well as managing partner of Deloitte LLP’s tax practice, where he increased its market share significantly and received numerous awards and citations. Salzberg joined Deloitte U.S. in 1977 and was admitted to the partnership in 1985.
