Following on the heels of his former boss, Internal Revenue Service Acting Commissioner Kevin M. Brown plans to leave the IRS in mid-September to become chief operating officer of the American Red Cross.

He has served as acting commissioner since May and also serves as deputy commissioner for services and enforcement. He also has served as chief of staff under former Commissioner Mark W. Everson, who left his post for the American Red Cross in April when he became the organization's president and CEO.

Brown previously served as commissioner of the IRS Small Business/Self-Employed Division and was division counsel in that same division.

Before he joined the IRS, Brown worked for the Department of Justice as an attorney in the Tax Division's Appellate Section and as counsel to the assistant attorney general for appellate matters. The IRS named Deputy Commissioner Linda Stiff as his replacement.
