That’s why they were chosen as this year’s class of Accounting Today’s Managing Partner Elite. We’re proud that our Firm Managing Partner Jim Proppe was recognized in this esteemed group.

Noted for how he kept teams intact and nurtured staff throughout the tumult of 2020, what distinguished Jim Proppe’s nomination was his ability to embrace change. Accounting Today recognized Jim for “the frequency and intention with which he develops strategy and goals,” the birth of an office dedicated to change management, and his forethought from day one on his successor.
