Individuals represented in the 2016 Most Admired Peers received a significant share of responses to IPA Annual Survey and Analysis of Firms question, “Please name one peer in the profession that you admire.”
“The commitment that these two leaders have made to building great firms and to their growth is very impressive,” said Alan Deichler, president of CPAmerica. “Recognition from ones’ peers is always the highest honor.”
Steve Knebel began his public accounting career in Houston with Deloitte (formerly Deloitte Haskins & Sells) and transferred to Austin in 1987 shortly after the opening of the Maxwell Locke & Ritter LLP’s (ML&R) Austin office.
