Deloitte Tax LLP, one of the largest tax services providers in the United States, has named Carl S. Allegretti new chairman and chief executive officer.
Allegretti will succeed Chet Wood, who headed the company since 2003 and will move to his new role as managing partner of markets and offerings of Deloitte LLP.
“In each of his leadership roles, Carl has made and maintained strong connections with both clients and people,” Deloitte LLP Chief Executive Officer-elect Joseph Echevarria said. “This is a formula for success that has served him well.”
Allegretti served as the Midwest regional managing partner for Deloitte Tax from 2004 to 2009. Under his leadership, the Midwest region experienced unprecedented growth, gaining the top market position in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and Wisconsin.
Allegretti has also appeared on Crain’s Chicago Business list of “Who’s Who in Chicago Business” each of the past six years and is a strong leader of Deloitte community service projects, serving as treasurer of Project Torch and as a member of the board of the Chicago Boys and Girls Club.
Allegretti received his bachelor’s degree from Butler University in Indiana.
