Larry Rose Announces Retirement

Larry Rose, CPA, Principal in the Bethalto, IL office, has officially announced his plans to retire on June 30th of this year. Larry’s retirement will mark the end of his 40-year public accounting career.

Larry spent 40 years at Allison Knapp Siekmann, LTD before they joined with us in October of 2014. He is an active member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), Missouri CPA Society, Illinois CPA Society, and the Bethalto area Kiwanis club.
