Klaus Becker

KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft

I have been Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Managing Board since 2011. In this role I represent KPMG Germany externally with regard to our clients and in my functions on various committees. Internally, I represent KMPG Germany in the international network as a member of the EMA Board and member of the Global Board of KPMG International.

I have been part of KPMG since 1993 and was appointed Partner in 2001. As German Public Auditor and Tax Advisor, I gained many years of experience in auditing annual and consolidated financial statements of companies operating nationally and internationally, as well as in strategic consulting of major DAX40 companies.

Since my appointment to the Managing Board in 2006, I have also held different positions, serving as member of the Audit Leadership Team, Head of Financial Services and Chief Operating Officer of KPMG Germany.
