Ericksen Krentel Elects New MP

Ericksen Krentel of New Orleans has a new MP: Ronald Dawson Jr., formerly the PIC of the accounting and audit services section.

As MP, he is responsible for creating and managing operational strategies that help the firm better serve its clients and the marketplace in addition to leading all strategic and administrative activities.

As PIC, he oversaw day-to-day operations of more than 20 accountants. Dawson also serves as segment leader of the firm’s construction and real estate niches.

He is active in community organizations and was recognized among New Orleans CityBusiness’ 2017 Money Makers honorees, which recognizes local professionals for financial achievements in their respective industries and their community impact.

The biggest satisfaction of his work, Dawson told CityBusiness, is getting that “a-ha” moment with a client. “It’s when the lightbulb goes off. When you have given them the knowledge, based on your skills, analytical or otherwise, that gives them what they need to make a decision. That’s a thrill for me.”

Dawson is Ericksen Krentel’s fifth MP. The firm also celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2020.
