Perry Kaufman Named Managing Partner of TravisWolff

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - July 24, 2014) - TravisWolff Independent Advisors and Accountants, a leading regional accounting and advisory firm, named Perry Kaufman as its Managing Partner today. Kaufman has been with TravisWolff since 2002 and previously acted as the Firm's Practice Group Leader for Business Tax and Advisory. Ken Travis remains Chairman of the Board.

Kaufman looks to continue to grow TravisWolff and to highlight the Firm's legacy of serving middle market businesses and successful individuals and their families in an advisory role. "Our mission is to help clients accomplish goals that are important to them... tax returns and financial statements are simply a byproduct of that focus."
