Meshginpoosh has assumed the Managing Director role, effective July 1, 2017. Chris succeeds Stephen W. Christian, who has led Kreischer Miller as Managing Director since 2002. Steve will continue with Kreischer Miller as a Director and will focus his time on strategic initiatives, building the firm’s brand in the marketplace, and serving clients.

As Managing Director, Chris will be responsible for Kreischer Miller’s strategic plan and direction, identifying opportunities for growth, ensuring the quality of services provided to clients, and fostering a collaborative environment where team members can learn and grow.

Steve Christian noted that, “It has been my great privilege to serve as Kreischer Miller’s Managing Director for the past 15-plus years. During that time, I have worked closely with Chris and I am confident that our firm, employees, and clients will continue to thrive under his leadership. Remaining independent as the largest locally-owned accounting firm is important to us, and Chris will effectively keep us on that path.”
