Katie Hamada Joins Crowe as New Chief People Officer


Chicago-based IPA 100 firm Crowe LLP (FY21 net revenue of $925.9 million) has appointed Katie Hamada as its new chief people officer, a role in which she will be responsible for all aspects of the firm’s people and talent experience – from talent transformation to recruiting, learning and development, benefits and compensation and cultural programs. She succeeds Julie Wood, who has served in the role for the past 17 years.

Hamada spent the last 16 years at Deloitte, serving as a leader in the talent organization and consulting with external clients on workforce strategies, talent management solutions and HR service delivery. Most recently, she served as managing director and talent transformation leader, focusing on evolving the ways of working, implementing new technologies and improving processes to enhance the employee experience.

“Now, more than ever, the human side of an organization helps create meaningful differentiation in terms of a company’s value proposition and market perception,” says CEO Mark Baer. “We are thrilled to welcome a leader of Katie’s caliber to Crowe as we continuously seek to provide an unrivaled people experience, where our employees and their families can thrive.”
