Portrait of Paul Snyder

Paul Snyder

Board Vice Chair, Managing Partner, KPMG LLP (retired)

“I love the pride the people of Minnesota have in our state, its communities and its people. Over the years the state has gone through significant change in its ethnicity while continuing to retain the great sense of concern we have for our neighbor’s well-being. It is an admirable characteristic we should never lose.”
