Kevin Campbell has been tapped as the advisory service leader of PwC US — succeeding Reggie Walker who recently assumed the role of managing partner of PwC’s Greater Atlanta market.
Campbell will be based in Atlanta and will oversee a growing team of more than 400 advisory service professionals in PwC’s Atlanta, Nashville and Birmingham offices. PwC also is known as the PricewaterhouseCoopers accounting and consulting firm.
When Walker led that practice, the advisory service business out of Atlanta achieved double-digit annualized growth over the last fiv e years.
Campbell has more than 20 years of experience as a consultant with PwC. He will oversee a team of consultants that provide a broad platform of advisory services, including deals, management and technology consulting and forensics.
The team also helps clients improve business processes, transform their organizations and implement new technologies. In addition, Campbell will draw upon his experience in PwC’s cybersecurity and information technology practices to help clients manage the continually changing security threats.
“Kevin is a seasoned consulting veteran who brings extensive experience to this role,” Wallker said of his successor. “Kevin’s previous leadership roles and his distinguished record of client service position him well for this significant responsibility. I am confident that his leadership will further enhance the overall services we provide for our new and existing clients.”
Campbell joined PwC in 1992 in the Cleveland, Ohio office as a member of the assurance practice before moving to Atlanta in 2002.
He was admitted as an advisory partner in 2005 and has helped his clients navigate a range of security solutions, including the delivery of numerous enterprise security deployments, IT security reviews, privacy framework creation and infrastructure deployments.
He specializes in helping companies evaluate their overall security programs, develop strategies to enable their business, implement solutions to improve their security capabilities and further enhance their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to technological vulnerabilities.
“I’m excited to continue the momentum of the past five years, I hope to carry out exceptional advisory strategy offerings for our clients and provide them with business solutions from strategy through execution,” Campbell said. “This market has proven to be diverse and innovative, and I’m eager to add my experience and skills to the equation.”
In addition to his professional achievements, Campbell is dedicated to giving back to the local community. He currently serves on the board of YES!Atlanta, an organization designed to mentor at-risk Atlanta youth. Campbell is a Certified Public Accountant with a bachelor’s degree from Ohio University.
