Barry Salzberg (born October 1953) is an American businessman, accountant, and lawyer.[1][2] Salzberg is full-time Professor at Columbia University and former global Chief Executive Officer of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, a position he held from June 2011 until May 2015.[3][4][5]


Salzberg is Jewish, and grew up in a poor neighborhood in Brooklyn, the youngest of five siblings.[6] His parents were clerks, and he and his older sister were the first in his family to attend university.[7] His father died while Salzberg was in high school, so he worked to help his family financially, and continued to live at home and work while he attended college.[8]

Salzberg earned an undergraduate degree in accounting from Brooklyn College, a JD from Brooklyn Law School (1977), and an LLM in tax from the New York University School of Law.[3][5][9]

Salzberg joined Deloitte in 1977, and became a partner of Deloitte U.S. in 1985. He was the Chief Executive Officer of Deloitte LLP (United States) from 2007 to 2011.[3][5]
