KPMG unveils new U.S. blockchain leadership to expand blockchain strategy

Tue, 11 Sep 2018, 12:39 pm UTC

Consulting and audit giant KPMG has announced new U.S. Blockchain leadership, in a bid to expand its blockchain strategy across its core lines of business – tax, audit, advisory, and industries.

“In addition to solving business issues with blockchain, companies need to account for the complex regulatory, tax and trade, auditability, risk and compliance implications that come with any global transaction and exchange,” the company said.

“KPMG's blockchain approach integrates financial management, digital transformation, and industry subject matter proficiency to provide businesses with comprehensive guidance on blockchain, from strategy to implementation.”


According to the official release, the company has appointed Arun Ghosh as its U.S. Blockchain leader, and David Jarczyk and Erich Braun have been named the U.S. Blockchain Tax and Audit leaders, respectively:

  • Ghosh has extensive experience driving business value by leveraging blockchain, analytics, automation and artificial intelligence for high-tech, industrial manufacturing and life sciences organizations.
  • Jarczyk assesses the complex tax and finance implications of blockchain. He has vast experience in determining market needs in response to tax reform and changes, implementing technological requirements, creating unique data analytics offerings, and developing go-to-market strategies.
  • Braun assesses blockchain technology and its impact on organizations and on KPMG's Audit practice. He also understands how companies are utilizing blockchain technology and its influence on audit procedures.

Last year, KPMG joined the Chamber of Digital Commerce, a leading trade association representing the digital asset and blockchain industry. The company is also a founding member of Blockchain Research Institute (BRI), a Canada-based blockchain research initiative led Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott,
