Dallas-based TravisWolff (FY13 net revenue of $19 million) has named Perry Kaufman as its new MP.

Kaufman has been with TravisWolff since 2002 and previously served as the firm’s practice group leader for business tax and advisory. Ken Travis remains chairman of the board for TravisWolff Independent Advisors and Accountants.

Kaufman looks to continue to grow TravisWolff’s middle market businesses. “Our mission is to help clients accomplish goals that are important to them… tax returns and financial statements are simply a byproduct of that focus,” he says. Kaufman started his career with a large international accounting firm. In later years he joined a smaller practice, then started his own firm and ultimately merged it with TravisWolff in 2002.

“We are fortunate to have Perry Kaufman serveas our managing partner as we position TravisWolff for the future,” Ken Travis says. “Perry is passionate about our core commitments to outstanding client service and value. We look forward to his leadership for years to come.”

Other leadership changes were made. Jerri Hammer will now serve in the newly created role, practice group leader, business and individual tax and advisory and Vance McCollough, currently practice group leader, audit and assurance, takes on the additional role of leading the advisory group.

  • Kelly Gillette, PIC of individual tax operations and quality control
  • Jennifer Steele, PIC of business tax operations and quality control
  • Jeff Owens, PIC of audit operations
  • Scott Stafford, PIC of audit quality control
