Deloitte has named Graham Cowie the new Managing Director of its Hermitage office in Tennessee after the retirement of Ken Gerdesmeier.
In his role, Cowie will supervise 1,000 Deloitte employees in the group while remaining a controller for Deloitte. In that position, Cowie oversees finance and accounting groups that manage the records, processes, and internal controls of the company’s practices in the United States.
Tom Aaron, Tennessee managing partner for the firm, said Cowie is an excellent choice. “I’m delighted that Graham will lead our Hermitage operations,” he said. “The Hermitage office serves important roles in Deloitte’s achievements in the Tennessee marketplace and around the world. Under Graham’s leadership, I know we will continue to provide exceptional service.”
“I look forward to working with our extraordinary Hermitage professionals in the work they do to support our clients, and the partners and professionals of Deloitte,” said Cowie of his new role. “We remain committed to client service and investing in the community.”
Cowie has worked for Deloitte for over 17 years, and he has worked in several accounting positions during his career. He received his B.S. in commerce and accounting from the South African University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.
