BKDLife:  Leadership Edition

BKDLife normally has two editions a year. The problem is we can’t fit all of the great things going on around the firm in just two issues. So we’ve decided to share a special summer edition specifically focused on leadership at BKD.

As everyone who works at BKD knows, we recently wrapped up our annual Leadership Conference, where we presented two BKDers with the firm’s highest honor:  the PRIDE Award. We interviewed both of our recipients—Fort Wayne Managing Partner Wally Wetherill and Springfield Manager Lindsay Dale—about what the award means to them.

Our second story centers on an incredibly important accomplishment achieved by one of BKD’s most respected executives. In October, BKD Chief Operating Officer Eric Hansen will be inaugurated as chair of the American Institute of CPAs. This is the first time someone from BKD has been appointed to this prestigious position, and Eric was kind enough to sit down and share his vision for both the organization and our profession as a whole.

I hope you enjoy the insight provided by some our firm’s most accomplished leaders. Until next time, happy reading!
