Veteran Deloitte managing partner retiring

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Michael Becher, the longtime managing partner of Deloitte LLP’s Indianapolis office, will retire June 1, the New York-based accounting firm said on Wednesday.

Becher’s career at Deloitte spans 36 years, including 20 years as the local office’s leader.
 
Located in Chase Tower, Deloitte is the city’s fifth-largest accounting firm based on number of certified public accountants employed, according to IBJ statistics. The firm has 69 CPAs and 139 employees.

The firm named Mary Boelke to replace Becher. She earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Indiana University and will be relocating from Dallas to Indianapolis with her husband and two children. Boelke practiced for nine years at Deloitte’s local office before serving as tax managing partner at the firm’s San Jose and Dallas locations.

“As a native Hoosier, it’s an honor to return to my deep roots in Indiana to lead our practice,” she said in a prepared statement. “I’m eager to build on our success under Mike’s leadership and to continue to develop our talent, enhance our brand in the marketplace and maintain our commitment to the Indianapolis communities.”

Among the Indianapolis-area's 20 largest accounting firms, Boelke will be one of two female managing partners. The other is Anita Sherman, who serves as co-managing partner with Larry Greenwalt at Greenwalt CPAs Inc.

Becher, 59, said will remain active on several business and civic boards of directors, including the United Way of Central Indiana, the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, Marian University and the Boy Scouts of America Crossroads of America Council.

    Congratulations on a successful career Mike, and to Mary as the incoming managing partner. Just to clarify, Anita Sherman is the President and Managing Partner at Greenwalt CPAs, and Larry Greenwalt is the Chairman of the Board. We have never had co-managing partners.

  1. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
