Deloitte Appoints Craig Kuckelman Kansas City Managing Partner

KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 29, 2014 — Deloitte has named Craig Kuckelman Kansas City managing partner. Kuckelman succeeds Jeff Provost, who is transitioning to a full-time client service role with Deloitte. Provost will be serving as lead client service partner for a number of the organization’s largest clients. He will continue to be based out of Deloitte’s Kansas City office, and will remain engaged in community and civic activities.

In his new role, Kuckelman will oversee the marketplace, quality, client service, regulatory, business growth, talent and community involvement initiatives for the Kansas City office. Additionally, he will continue to counsel Deloitte’s clients in the retail, distribution, transportation, manufacturing, and other industry sectors. Kuckelman will also spearhead community initiatives and interact with various professional organizations.

“It is an honor to be asked to serve Deloitte’s professionals and clients in the Kansas City marketplace,” said Kuckelman. “I am excited to continue my personal focus on the Kansas City market and my dedication to our community.”

Kuckelman joined Deloitte Tax LLP in 1991 and was admitted to the partnership in 2000. He was named managing partner of the Kansas City tax practice in 2003, and will continue to hold these responsibilities going forward. Kuckelman has extensive cross-industry experience serving large privately-owned businesses and the associated owners.

In 2008, Kansas City’s Ingram’s business magazine named Kuckelman to its annual list of “40 under Forty,” recognizing him for his accomplishments as a business and community leader under the age of 40. Kuckelman has been an active member of the Kansas City community, volunteering his time for various organizations, including Children’s Mercy Hospital and United Way Tocqueville Society. He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Emporia State University.

“Craig brings a strong track record of professional achievements and dedication to serving the Kansas City community,” said Provost. “I am confident he has the ability to build upon our strong presence and bring our professionals together to continue to serve clients with distinction.”
