New York (April 22, 2004) -- PricewaterhouseCoopers has named J. Richard (Rick) Stamm to lead the firm’s U.S. tax practice, succeeding Rick Berry, who will retire in June.   Stamm will assume the post on July 1. He will work closely with Berry through a transition period between now and the end of June.   Stamm, a 28-year PwC vet, currently has oversight of the specialized practice units that comprise PwC's tax practice and is a member of both the U.S. and the global tax leadership teams.   “Rick Berry has guided our tax practice through some challenging and dramatic periods of change for the accounting industry,” said Stamm. “We have a great foundation from which to build and I look forward to continuing in his path of success.”   Berry joined the firm in 1974 and was admitted to the partnership in 1983.   -- WebCPA staff
