Minneapolis, Minnesota — October 10, 2016 — Denny Schleper, CEO of CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA), has been recognized by Accounting Today as one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting. The magazine’s annual list characterizes these 100 men and women as “the thought leaders and visionaries who are shaping the accounting profession.”

Announced early in September, the Top 100 is an overview of individuals in and out of the industry who have made a significant and lasting impact on the accounting profession. It includes traditional accounting executives and leaders, as well as high-profile individuals from professional associations, technology companies, publishers, and consultants.

“To be included on this list is very rewarding,” said Schleper. “It is especially meaningful since honorees on the annual list are nominated and voted on by their peers in the profession.”

As CEO, Schleper provides oversight of firm direction, operations, acquisitions, and strategy. He has also served as chief business officer, chief practice officer, managing principal for the Eastern region, managing principal of offices, principal-in-charge of the St. Louis office, and principal-in-charge of health care services in St. Louis.

“Even in an era of relentless mergers and acquisitions, Schleper and CLA stand out,” said Accounting Today in its report. “He is fast becoming a role model for regional firm leaders who want to make their mark.”
