Marketer Makes Partner in Houston

Karen Love, the Director of Practice Growth of PKF Texas, has snagged the golden ring for marketers: she did such a great job for her firm that she was made a partner after working at the firm for only 4 years!

Karen_loveI picked this news up from the latest issue of Marketrends, the newsletter of the Association for Accounting Marketing, where she is a Member-at-large on the board of directors:
Under her tenure at PKF Texas, the accounting firm experienced unprecedented growth, moving from Houston's 17th largest firm to the 7th largest in 2004. The firm has doubled in number of employees and revenues over that period. 

According to PKF Texas President, Kenneth Guidry, "Karen is truly a team player in that she measures her success by how successful we are as a firm. Karen has played a leadership role in directing our strategy and branding and in helping shape our firm's culture and focus. She is an advocate for personal and professional growth and for embracing change. Her overall impact and value to our firm are immeasurable. From day one with us she evidenced an entrepreneurial and ownership mindset."

Karen has more than ten years of experience in the accounting industry, having been recognized as CPA Marketing Report's Marketer of the Year in 2002 and as one of Accounting Today's Top 100 Most Influential People in the Accounting Profession. She's even got her own Web page on the PKF site -- where she's presented as "PKF's Ambassador for the Marketplace." 

Now they'll have to upgrade her to "shareholder." Congratulations Karen.
