Our friend and coworker, Richard Kostboth, was recently honored by the OSCPA with the organization’s Rick Kells Outstanding Tax Professional Award.
This recognition is a well-earned nod from his peers, many of whom have served on boards and committees with Dick over the years. Created in 2011 to honor former accounting leader Rick Kells, the award is given by the OSCPA’s Taxation Committee to a certified public accountant specializing in taxation who shows individual achievement and leadership.
This award reinforces what those of us at Arledge & Associates already know, Dick is a consummate accounting professional. Over the years, we’ve watched him help countless clients navigate the ever-changing tax codes, all the while making the process look effortless.
The writer and historian Will Durant once said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” On behalf of all of us at Arledge & Associates, we thank Dick for his continued habit of excellence and congratulate him on this much-deserved honor.
