Dallas, TX (October 18, 2016) – Whitley Penn is pleased to announce that Larry Autrey has been named a 2016 Most Admired Peer, according to INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA), a national publication serving the accounting profession.

“These leaders are well-known to CPAs across the country because they are committed to sharing their knowledge and advocating for the profession,” says Kelly Platt, principal of the Platt Group. “They run successful firms, and not just in a financial sense. They lead strong, unified teams, give back to their communities and continually look for new ways to help their clients succeed.”

  • Andy Armanino, MP of San Ramon, California-based Armanino 
  • Larry Autrey, MP of Fort Worth, Texas-based Whitley Penn 
  • Steve Knebel, MP of Austin, Texas-based Maxwell, Locke & Ritter 
  • Gordon Krater, MP of Southfield, Michigan-based Plante Moran 
  • Steve Tatone, Chairman of the Board for Salem, Oregon-based AKT Group

“I am honored to be recognized as one of the Most Admired Peers along with these other great leaders in the accounting profession. As managing partner of my firm, I strive daily to create positive and meaningful business relationships within the firm and the world-wide accounting profession. I am the professional I am today because of many admirable people in this profession who influenced my life, and I am honored to know that I have had a positive impact on others in return,” stated Larry Autrey, Managing Partner at Whitley Penn.

The partners and staff of Whitley Penn congratulate Larry for this prestigious honor.
