For the second time in about a month, the managing partner of a major Baltimore accounting firm has been promoted to the top position in his company's Philadelphia office.
D. Keith Cobb will be leaving KPMG Peat Marwick's 250-person Baltimore operation sometime in midsummer, he said yesterday.
"I will be assuming the responsibilities of managing partner of the Philadelphia office," said Mr. Cobb, who also has overall responsibility for Baltimore and Washington and three offices in Virginia. Mr. Cobb, 50, assumed those duties six months ago and is on his firm's 21-member management committee.
Peat's Philadelphia operation is roughly twice as large as the one in Baltimore, Mr. Cobb said. He's been with the firm for 28 years and worked at 111 S. Calvert St. for two years. His successor will be named in about a month.
