KPMG CEO Will Take Some of Penn State’s Questions

KPMG CEO John Veihmeyer — Notre Dame alum, dedicated steward of an employer of choice — is on the guest list at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week. We don't have his itinerary in hand but it stands to reason that he'll have a hectic schedule of interviews, networking, and general CEO-y stuff on behalf of the House of Klynveld. 

Just a few days after his return to the States, JV will be in Stage College, PA visiting Penn State to have a chat with students, faculty and anybody who happens to pop in.

John B. Veihmeyer, chairman and CEO of KPMG in the U.S. and chairman of KPMG across the Americas, will share his perspectives on business and leadership with the Penn State Smeal College of Business community from 11:15 a.m. to 12:05 p.m. Feb. 1 as part of the college’s Executive Insights series in 110 Business Building.
 
As part of his visit, Veihmeyer will take part in a moderated discussion with Charles H. Whiteman, John and Becky Surma Dean of Smeal, in front of an audience of Penn State students, faculty and staff. Veihmeyer will also meet with several student groups on campus and visit various accounting classes.
Possible topics for discussion: The FORTUNE fiasco; Phil Mickelson's taxes, Stacy Lewis's comeback as an auditor; how the skiing in Switzerland is, etc. etc. What would you ask JV? Tell us. Or get yourself to Happy Valley and ask him.
