NEW YORK, Sept. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Mazars USA LLP, a leading accounting, tax, and consulting firm, today announced that Julie Venkat has joined the firm as Chief Human Resource Officer. Julie succeeds John Porricelli, who after 20 years with the firm will be stepping down at the end of the calendar year.
"We are grateful and indebted to John for his years of dedication," said Mazars USA Chairman and CEO Victor Wahba. "He was at the epicenter of the firm's exponential growth over recent years, bringing in top talent and ensuring rewarding employee experiences.
