Irwin Katz, 96, the founder of Indianapolis-based Katz, Sapper & Miller, passed away Sept. 9.

“KSM stands for lifetime relationships, integrity and entrepreneurship,” the firm’s website tribute reads. “Mr. Katz did more than embody these principles himself. He instilled them in his firm, and made them an indelible part of KSM’s proud corporate culture.”

After serving in World War II, Katz joined Levy & Calderon in 1952, and his name was added to the door the same year. The firm later became Katz Sapper Miller (FY14 net revenue of $58.5 million).

“Mr. Katz arrived at his new firm with a deeply held conviction that a company’s balance sheet was more than numbers on a piece of paper; it told a story. His abiding interest in the stories behind the numbers revealed not just Mr. Katz’s industriousness, but also his commitment to his clients,” the firm website says.

“Honest, objective, with a healthy curiosity and a quiet sense of humor, Mr. Katz set an example with his solid work ethic, and a determined mindset that refused to move on from a challenge until he found a solution. He took great pride in watching KSM grow into the firm it is today.”
