Ken Stoler

As a partner in PwC’s Human Resource Services practice, I lead our HR Accounting Advisory group.  My team and I work with companies on various aspects of employee compensation arrangements, including financial reporting, tax, process, and design.  I’ve worked extensively with public and private companies of all sizes and in all industries on compensation-related issues associated with acquisitions and divestitures, spin-off's and carve-outs, going-public transactions, restructurings and severance arrangements.  I speak often on employee compensation issues, have authored many publications on the topic, and am often quoted in various media articles. 

Prior to assuming this role, I spent four years in PwC's national office, and earlier in my career spent two years as an inspector with the PCAOB and seven years as an audit manager with Deloitte, including in Deloitte's national office.  I received my bachelor's degree from Emory University in Georgia, and am a Certified Public Accountant licensed in California, Georgia, New Jersey, and New York.  Specialties: Accounting, tax, process and design for stock compensation, deferred compensation, pensions and other postretirement benefits, severance arrangements, restructurings
