Debbie MessemerDebbie Messemer, Managing Partner for KPMG’s Bay Area Market, has been selected by the Financial Women of San Francisco as the 2016 Financial Woman of the Year. This award recognizes Messemer for her outstanding leadership and achievement in her various finance roles

With a background in banking and accounting, Messemer joined KPMG in 1982 in their Fort Worth office and in 1998 transferred to their San Francisco office. In 2008 she became KPMG’s first San Francisco female Managing Partner and today leads a team of over 1,100 high-performing audit, tax, and advisory professionals.

Advancing Careers for 60 Years

In 1956, 17 forward-thinking women in the investment community gathered to create a forum to exchange ideas, share experiences and develop their careers. The Financial Women's Club of San Francisco, as our organization was originally known, was the first organization for executive women in finance in the country. Our mission, then and now, is to advance professionalism in finance and financial services by promoting the development, career progress and leadership of women. Read about our rich history.
