Sara Elizabeth Hyre has been elected to succeed Rob Wheeler as Shareholder-in-Charge of the tax department at Clark Nuber (FY13 net revenue of $31 million) of Bellevue, Wash., effective Oct. 1. The process for selecting Hyre included discussions with all tax shareholders as well as the management board, all of whom agreed that she possesses the organizational and leadership skills to take on this responsibility.

Hyre has been with Clark Nuber for nine years and has been a shareholder for three. She joined the firm after a very successful Big 4 career because of a deep passion she has for serving not-for-profit clients. She has been a key player in the continued growth of the not-for-profit group serving the tax needs of traditional clients, as well as specializing in the emerging strategic areas of health care and higher education.

“I am deeply honored that the shareholders have selected me to succeed Rob as leader of the tax practice,” says Hyre. “I look forward to working more closely with team members in all of the business segments and niches of the department and the firm.”

“We are delighted to have Sara Elizabeth accept this great opportunity,” says Wheeler. “She is a highly respected leader in our not-for-profit practice and we are confident that she will use her skills to maintain the firm’s position as the market leader in providing tax services to our target markets.”
