LANCASTER, PA (May 15, 2023) — RKL LLP is pleased to announce that two partners are moving into new leadership positions effective June 1, 2023. Wade G. Becker, CPA, CGMA, will move into the newly created role of Chief Revenue Officer and Michael J. Eby, CPA, will succeed Becker as Managing Partner for RKL’s Capital Region footprint.
Becker is taking the lead on business development at the firm after the untimely passing of Partner and Chief Business Development Office Scott J. Kimmel earlier this year. In his new position, Becker will also focus on strategic revenue initiatives for the firm.
“We’re proud to fill such important roles for the firm with two leaders who share Scott’s dedication to RKL and will continue his legacy of building relationships and serving others,” said RKL CEO Ed Monborne.
Since joining the RKL partnership in February 2014, Becker has been active in business development and relationship management. He was integral to the launch of the firm’s Harrisburg office in May 2014 and continued to build RKL’s presence in the Capital Region.
“We simply wouldn’t have seen the same level of growth or success in the Capital Region without Wade’s hard work and commitment, and I’m eager to see him apply those skills to help drive business for the entire firm,” said Monborne.
Eby has been a leader in both the Tax Services Group and the Capital Region Office since joining RKL in November 2018. In his new Managing Partner role, Eby will oversee general operations and support the firm’s growth in the Capital Region.
“Mike is a trusted mentor to our team, a sought-after tax expert and a respected advisor to his clients,” said Monborne. “We know our Capital Region presence is in good hands with his steady leadership.”
Becker holds a B.S. in Finance and Accounting from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and completed the Executive Education Program at Harvard University. He resides in New Cumberland. Eby holds a B.S. in Accounting from Messiah University. He resides in Mechanicsburg with his wife and their daughters. Both are members of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
