Soluri and Glaser will continue to stay involved in the firm, focusing on client relations, assisting in transaction issues and furthering the success of the practice.

The transition has been a critical initiative for the firm, as part of a strategically designed succession plan.

“During my 30-year tenure with Freed Maxick, I’ve had the unique opportunity to be mentored by three of the finest managing directors in the public accounting profession, which include Leonard Freed, Robert Glaser and Ronald Soluri Sr. During that period of time I’ve had the benefit of learning from their thought leadership which has driven Freed Maxick to be a Top 100 Firm in the country. I take over leadership of the Firm with a strong foundation consisting of a remarkable client base, and a dedicated group of fellow directors and professional staff,” states McPoland.
