Kroll Appoints New Leaders as Firm Continues Strategic Transformation
Leadership Changes and Newly Created Roles Advance Growth, Technology and Operational Excellence and Culture
NEW YORK – December 8, 2021 – Kroll, the world’s premier provider of services and digital products related to valuation, governance, risk and transparency, today announced the appointment of several new leaders. These individuals assume a combination of newly created and existing roles that advance Kroll’s mission to pursue growth in alignment with client needs now and into the future.
The new leadership appointments mark the latest in Kroll’s transformation to position the firm to achieve its highest potential with a focus on organic growth, technology and operational excellence and inclusion.

Through this strategic transition, the firm is delivering a seamless experience across its suite of services, with a cohesive approach to delivering solutions to their clients’ most complex challenges.
“Our team is poised to deliver on our goal of providing exceptional client service through innovative, market-leading risk, governance and financial solutions, while also fostering an inclusive culture and the collaborative ethos that has made us so successful,” said CEO Jacob Silverman. “I’m excited for this fresh and energized leadership team as we embrace our collective future, and I am thankful for the countless contributions from those who are passing along the torch as part of this transition.”
Effective immediately, the following people assume leadership roles in several key areas across the firm:
Ben Schrag – Chief Growth Officer
