Maximo Mukelabai’s Legacy Paves Way for Future Leaders
Last summer, the CPA profession lost a young champion, a dedicated volunteer and a tenacious leader—Maximo Mukelabai. Only 36, Maximo passed away unexpectedly, leaving behind two young daughters and a loving wife. Maximo was passionate about being a CPA. In fact, his enthusiasm for and devotion to his work, led him to become the youngest professional and first African-American to chair the NCACPA’s board of directors.
I hope you’ll take the time to nominate someone for the Maximo Mukelabai Award and recognize them for their dedication to the profession. Learn more about the The Maximo Mukelabai Award.
