Weinstein Spira, the mid-market public accounting firm for Houston’s top privately held businesses and high net worth individuals, is proud to announce that Kristin Murray has been elected the firm’s Managing Shareholder.
Murray succeeds Dianne Peckham, the firm’s first female managing shareholder who served for nine years. Peckham will continue serving her clients and acting as a resource until her retirement on June 30, 2019.
“I am delighted to lead Weinstein Spira into its next stage of growth, guiding the firm through the evolution of the accounting environment of the future. We know changes are coming and I am confident that our forward-looking approach will allow us continued success” stated Murray.
Murray brings a deep knowledge and solid experience in tax, change leadership and firm administration that will be integral in executing initiatives critical to meeting the firm’s strategic goals.
“I have worked closely with Kristin for the past 10 years, and I know she will be a great leader for Weinstein Spira,” said Peckham. “Her contributions and commitment to the firm have been immeasurable. I look forward to seeing where she takes Weinstein Spira in the years to come.”
After starting her career with an international public accounting firm, Murray joined Johnson Baur & Carrillo as a partner in 1998. She later became a shareholder at Weinstein Spira when the two firms merged in 2008.
With over 25 years of hands-on experience directing, delivering and supporting progressive firm processes and initiatives, Murray has been a critical driver behind Weinstein Spira’s push for increased efficiencies, valuable client service offerings and a welcoming culture.
As managing shareholder, Murray will oversee firm operations, spearhead further innovation and foster the environment for an exceptional culture.
