Steve Amigone, Chair of the Praxity North American Tax and Fiscal Group, recently announced that Roy Deaver, International Tax Partner at Moss Adams, is stepping down from his role as Deputy Chair due to changes in his work responsibility. Kellie Becker, International Tax Partner at Plante Moran, will take over this role.
Steve, who is a Principal and leader of the Transfer Pricing Services Group at DHG, was the first of many to thank Roy for his significant contributions and leadership. This sentiment was echoed by all of the NA Steering Committee participants. Roy will remain an active member of the Steering Committee.
Kellie says that she is honoured to take this role and hopes she can live up to the high standards set by her predecessors. The NA Steering Committee unanimously endorsed Kellie and looks forward to her fresh perspective.
Kellie is a Partner and firm-wide leader of Plante Moran’s International Tax Services Group. She specializes in cross-border tax planning and has experience in structuring and due diligence for multinational acquisitions, seller-side strategies for multinational dispositions, planning for foreign-owned U.S. businesses, and post-acquisition restructuring. Kellie also has significant experience in ASC 740 (FAS 109) for U.S. multinational companies.
Kellie has represented Plante Moran at a number of Praxity International Conferences. She is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants.
