New Philadelphia, Ohio-based IPA 100 firm Rea & Associates has chosen Mark McKinley to serve as its sixth CEO. Before officially taking over on Nov. 1, 2022, McKinley will spend several months learning from current CEO Don McIntosh, who has been in the role since 2017.
“Mark will continue Rea’s path of smart growth and prepare us for the future by prioritizing exceptional client service and creating opportunities for our Rea team members,” says McIntosh. “Over the next year, Mark and I will work closely as he learns about the CEO’s responsibilities and transitions his work to other team members. I’m confident in his leadership and excited for this next chapter.”
McKinley has been with Rea & Associates since 1994 and was named West Central Ohio regional president in 2017, in charge of overseeing the firm’s Dublin and Lima locations as well as the federal tax, state and local tax, business valuation and construction segments and service lines. He has also served two three-year terms on Rea’s board of directors.
“I’m humbled by this opportunity and thrilled to play a significant role in our future,” says McKinley. “The only reason I’m in this position is because of the dedication and performance of every team member I’ve worked with throughout my Rea career.”
