On the heels of the announcement of a strategic leadership succession plan, officials from public accounting and advisory firm Dixon Hughes Goodman (DHG) recently announced changes in the company's upper management structure.
Kent Satterfield is now the chairman of DHG’s Executive Committee, while Mike Crawford is COO and Tricia Wilson is regional managing partner of the Carolinas Region.
Ken Hughes, the previous chairman, retired in May.
Satterfield said he was "honored" to become the chairman.
"My predecessors have shaped our mission and values and helped guide us to where we are today,” he said. “I congratulate Mike and Tricia on their new roles, and I look forward to working alongside them, our leadership team, and our partners as we continue to build valuable careers with our people and help our clients achieve their goals.”
Satterfield has been with DHG for 33 years.
“DHG has successfully built a pipeline of leaders to anticipate future needs within the firm and continuously work to develop the next generation of leaders,” Matt Snow, DHG's CEO, said. “Each of these partners has demonstrated success in all aspects of leadership and I am excited for them to take on these well-deserved roles.”
DHG employs more than 2,000 people in 12 states.
