Ken Kuykendall

US Tax Leader and Tax Consulting Leader, PwC US

I’m a problem solver, a team-builder and a synthesizer. I enable my teams to create innovative solutions for complex problems that link stakeholder needs to long-term impact.

I team with a national network of over 50,000 tax, consulting and audit professionals to deliver quality and tech-enabled outcomes for our clients. I bring a deep knowledge of the US tax system to my role, leveraging over 30 years of experience in industry and government. I’ve worked with multinational corporations and have advised governmental and administrative agencies including the FASB, IRS, US Congress and the US Treasury on tax and financial reporting matters.

I’m a native Chicagoan, die-hard Chicago Cubs fan, lover of metal bands, husband and proud father of two college aged sons.
