Fort Worth-based accounting and advisory firm JTaylor has appointed Michael Malloy as president and managing partner.
Malloy succeeds founder and co-managing partner Joseph D. Taylor, who will serve as chairman of the board.
“As a company that always has prided itself on recruiting, nurturing and retaining top young talent, Michael represents the next step in the firm’s evolution and growth,” Taylor said. “With a dynamic leadership team composed mostly of people under 40, JTaylor is poised to provide best-in-class service to our clients for the next 20 years and beyond.”
In his previous role as co-managing partner, Malloy and Taylor collaborated to lead the firm through a period of unprecedented organic growth, one that saw the firm’s revenue and personnel grow by more than 40 percent over 24 months.
“I am grateful for the exemplary leadership shown by Joe Taylor and Vice President Shannon Schumacher as well as the rest of the leadership team, and couldn’t be more excited about working alongside them as we begin an exciting new chapter in the firm’s history,” Malloy said.
Malloy began his career in the business consulting division of Arthur Andersen after graduating from Texas A&M University with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s in finance. Before joining JTaylor, he served as a manager in the health sciences advisory services practice at Ernst & Young.
Malloy is active in the community with United Community Centers, The Women’s Center of Tarrant County and Mays Business School at Texas A&M University, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants.
JTaylor was recently named a “Fastest-Growing Firm in the Nation” by INSIDE Public Accounting Magazine.
