Offterdinger Named A ‘Most Influential’ Leader

Ed Offterdinger, Executive MP of Chicago-based Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (FY13 net revenue of $301 million), has been selected by the Washington Business Journal as one of the region’s most influential business leaders. This year’s Power 100 is the Journal’s second annual list. Criteria included leaders who were “influential, respected and able to get things done.” Offterdinger’s selection was due in part to his leadership in a recent merger with New York firm Holtz Rubenstein Reminick that expanded Baker Tilly’s East Coast footprint, bolstering the number of professionals to 1600 and revenues to more than $300 million. In addition to overseeing the firm’s east region, he also chairs the management committee and takes a leadership role in many philanthropic endeavors.
