A Place In The Global Community

Recognizing the importance of collaboration with other Maryland accounting firms and the global accounting community, KatzAbosch was a founding firm of the Leading Edge Alliance (LEA), a global alliance of major independently-owned accounting and consulting firms in the United States and throughout the world. Since its inception, KatzAbosch has become a leader within the organization by founding various subsets of the group and speaking regularly at LEA conferences. The LEA provides the firm with a vast network of CPA firms nationally as a resource. Some of the resulting benefits to KatzAbosch and our clients include:

  • Peer-to-peer advisory services regarding client issues
  • “Best practices” regarding client services, financial/operations metrics, and technology
  • Research tools

In addition, the LEA has special interest groups that allow member firms to further increase their expertise in specific industries and practice areas. KatzAbosch is a member of multiple special interest groups including Accounting & Auditing, Tax, Not-for-Profit, and others within the LEA.

A Noteworthy Name

The KatzAbosch name is derived from our Co-Founders, Alvin Katz and John Abosch. As stated by current CEO and President Mark R. Cissell this most recent name change, “makes perfect sense…Because Alvin Katz and John Abosch built this firm on their expertise, strong ethics, and keen business savvy…” The firm continues to thrive and grow through respect for, and understanding of, these bedrock principles.

KatzAbosch continues to establish itself as an exceptionally skilled, technically savvy, and versatile Maryland accounting firm. We expect that an understanding of how this company was formed, as well as careful planning for the future, will only increase the stature of this firm and the success of our clients.
