Headshot of Kellie Becker

I grew up in a small town in the middle of nowhere in the Finger Lakes region of New York. My town was too small for traffic lights or a gas station.

Kellie Becker
Partner, CPA, International Tax Services Practice Leader


I am the firm-wide leader of Plante Moran’s International Tax Services group. With 19 years of experience, clients turn to me for my expertise on navigating the complexities of doing business abroad. Most of my clients are owner managed to large organizations with a focus on outbound operations, inbound services, and global transaction planning. I advise them on taxation of foreign investments in the United States, U.S. investments in foreign jurisdictions, due diligence for multinational acquisitions, and more. 

Around the office, I’m known for taking the time to teach staff. I’m passionate about developing my team to be the next generation of leaders. I encourage them to chart a career path for themselves, and then I create opportunities to make it happen; it’s gratifying to watch them develop the skills to master the next professional challenge.

I care a lot for my clients and colleagues. When I’m not at work, I love being outside with my family. My husband, kids, and I hike, swim, and ski throughout the Northeast.

I’m Chair of the North American Praxity Tax Group, Vice-Chair of Praxity Global Tax and Board Member to the Praxity Membership Committee.  Annually, I speak at the Praxity conference on international tax issues. I’m a member of the AICPA and the MICPA and I have a B.S. in accounting from the Rochester Institute of Technology.
