Leadership Team

The MSM leadership team reflects the diverse and unique nature of our business — bringing unparalleled expertise and cross-level experience in accounting, information technology, management and leadership, government contracting, and organizational performance. Through 80 years of combined professional services experience, these leaders have developed a formula for changing inefficient processes into a system that runs like a well oiled machine.

A proven track record of results creates a strong foundation for the success of both our clients and our firm. These leaders truly epitomize the MSM philosophy of going above and beyond. Sure, they’re wild about great service and geeks about new technology, but that’s exactly what we want our leadership to be.
