New York-based Big 4 firm Deloitte has appointed Kara Klinger as new MP of the firm’s Tampa, Fla., office, succeeding the retiring Tom Corona.
Klinger has been with Deloitte for 26 years, specializing in international financial reporting standards, initial public offerings and mergers and acquisitions across a variety of industries. She was most recently the Deloitte Private leader in Florida and Puerto Rico and the north Florida accounting and reporting advisory leader. In leading the Tampa office, Klinger will oversee more than 1,000 professionals working in audit, consulting, tax, and risk and financial advisory.
“Not only do her technical skills excel, but she has been instrumental in building up our people and in creating a culture of excellence,” Corona says of his successor. “She has grown tremendously as a professional and as a leader, and she is more than ready to lead Deloitte into the next decade.”
