Douglas Zuvich has been named to head the trade and customs practice for KPMG LLP, the accounting and tax firm.
Zuvich most recently served as Midwest Area leader for the practice, a position he retains.
Zuvich will be responsible for overseeing the practice's trade and customs accounts in the United States, formulating business plans for clients involved in cross-border trade, and working with KPMG International member firms in expanding the organization's global trade and customs business. He will be based in the firm's Chicago office.
He reports to Richard Boykin, KPMG's national principal in charge of International Corporate Services, which includes the Trade and Customs practice.
Zuvich, a licensed customs broker, joined KPMG in April 1997 as a manager in its trade and customs practice and was later promoted to senior manager, eventually assuming lead responsibilities for the firm's customs compliance team. After three years with the firm, he joined Mitsubishi Motor Sales of the Caribbean as vice president and controller, a position he held until January 2002, when he rejoined KPMG in his most recent prior position. He began his career with the U.S. Customs Service as a regulatory auditor.
