Robert Kerr Returns to NAEA as New Executive Vice President
WASHINGTON, D.C., February 6, 2018 — The Board of Directors of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Robert Kerr as NAEA’s Executive Vice President. Kerr returns to NAEA where he previously served for more than 12 years as Senior Director, Government Relations. He succeeds former EVP Cedric Calhoun CAE, FASAE.
“Bob brings with him an impressive tax-focused résumé,” said NAEA President James Adelman, EA. “He also recently applied to become an enrolled agent himself, which means that he sat for and passed all three parts of the strenuous exams that demonstrate a wide range of practical tax knowledge. We look forward to having a fellow enrolled agent at the helm.”
Before leading government relations activities at NAEA, Kerr spent a decade at the Internal Revenue Service where, among other things, he led a variety of electronic filing initiatives. Kerr provided IRS oversight on the United States Senate Finance Committee as well, and has experience leading government affairs activities in the private sector.
An Ohio native, Kerr received a bachelor’s degree in business administration before earning his MBA from Case Western Reserve University.
