IPA Top 100 Firm Names New MP

Buffalo, N.Y.-based Freed Maxick & Battaglia (FY10 net revenue of $34.1 million) named Ronald Soluri, Sr. MP effective May 2011. Soluri succeeds Robert Glaser.

The move is part of the firm’s overall succession strategy, which will have Glaser remain as the firm’s chairman of the board. Soluri joined FM&B as a staff accountant in 1973 and was admitted to partner in 1983. He currently serves as the firm’s vice chairman. “The firm’s succession plan has been developing for several years,” says Glaser. “Now is the time to turn over the day-to-day operations to Ron which will allow me to focus on longer-term strategies for the firm and our clients.”
