KPMG chairman Mike Rake said Campbell, 53, will lead the firm's global technology initiatives and sit on its international executive team. He will also continue to be involved in the leadership of KPMG's audit and advisory services center.
Campbell began his career with KPMG in its London office in 1974, later transferring to San Francisco. He left KPMG in 1990 to join Wells Fargo as an executive vice president, overseeing the bank's day-to-day auditing practices.
He rejoined KPMG in 1995 and was tasked with building a new advisory business focused on helping companies manage their technology risks. That new Information Risk Management (IRM) practice became one of KPMG's fastest-growing businesses, growing from 39 consultants in 1995 to about 1,500 today, according to the company.
