In Memoriam

Robert M. Powers, former president and managing partner of Calegari &Morris, passed away due to complications from ALS on October 14, 2015. Bob was born and raised in Milwaukee and earned his BS in mechanical engineering from Marquette University and an MBA from Tulane University. Following his graduation from Tulane, Bob began his accounting career with Ernst & Ernst in San Francisco, where he worked for 10 years before joining Calegari & Morris in 1981. During Bob’s more than 30 years with our firm, he was integral to the recruiting and mentoring of our staff as well as the growth and success of our business. He has left us much too soon, but his spirit and legacy will be a part of Calegari & Morris for years to come.

“Our job is to watch over every aspect of our clients’ financial situation, both business and personal. By knowing our clients and their advisors on a personal basis, understanding their family and business goals and the current state of their business and industry, we can proactively plan for the future, identifying potential issues and roadblocks before they arise and working together to develop a plan for the future.”
