Cray Kaiser announces Deanna Salo as Managing Principal

September 2021

Russell Bedford's Chicago member firm, Cray,  Kaiser Ltd., has announced Deanna Salo as Managing Principal, taking over from Jim Scherzinger as of 27 September 2021. To also note, this firm is more than 50% woman-owned.

The Managing Principal is responsible for driving the strategic vision of our firm while continuing to manage our day-to-day operations along with the other Principals. It is a role in which Jim excelled as the growth of the firm can attest. Jim will continue to serve as a Principal of CK and most-trusted advisor to his clients, providing the utmost in counsel, dedication and care as he has done his entire career.

As Deanna, who was recently appointed as a director of the global board for Russell Bedford International, steps into the Managing Principal role, her entire career has, without a doubt, prepared her to lead the firm. Deanna has spent her career at CK, joining in 1986 and becoming a Principal in 2001. Her ability to identify strategic opportunities as well as uncover the smallest of details – an ability to focus on both the forest and the trees, if you will – will undoubtedly serve CK as well as it has served her clients for decades. Deanna will remain a most trusted advisor for her clients as she continues to educate and care for them while also serving in her new role as Managing Principal.
