Deloitte US’s Joseph Ucuzoglu: The Right Leader For “The Fourth Industrial Revolution”

Deloitte US’ new CEO Joseph Ucuzoglu is the right leader for “the fourth industrial revolution.”

In June, Ucuzoglu succeeded Cathy Engelbert as the CEO of the professional services consultant firm based in New York City, at the same time Janet Foutty succeeded Mike Fucci as chairman.

“Joe’s distinguished record of serving our clients and driving transformative, technology-driven change positions him to lead our firm as clients, the capital markets, and society at large turn to Deloitte to navigate the opportunities brought on by the fourth industrial revolution,” Fucci said in March when the announcement was made.

Ucuzoglu most recently served as the chair and CEO of Deloitte & Touche LLP, where he oversaw “the transformation” of its audit and assurance practice over the past four years, “preparing Deloitte’s talent for a digitally-driven future.”

Previously, Ucuzoglu served as senior adviser to the chief accountant at the Securities and Exchange Commission, advising on complex accounting, auditing and public policy matters, and interacting frequently with other governmental agencies and Congress.

As the newly elected CEO of Deloitte US, Ucuzoglu is focused on a transformative, forward-thinking approach to guide the organization and its clients through today’s tech-centric landscape. Ucuzoglu’s commitment to innovation and inclusion are core to his business and client outlook, and two critical tenets driving his people strategy.

“As we navigate an ever-changing landscape, our market-leading commitment to innovation and inclusion helps our clients to thrive and capitalize upon the ongoing disruptive forces shaping a technology-driven future.”
