Alvin Katz, CPA and Co-Founder of KatzAbosch has been elected to serve as Treasurer on the Board of Directors for The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools. Alvin joined the Board in the summer of 2015 and was quickly asked to serve as The Education Foundation’s Treasurer.
Alvin is a Co-Founder of KatzAbosch and has been with the Firm since its inception 46 years ago. From 1989 through 2009, Alvin Katz served as President and CEO of KatzAbosch. Since co-founding the firm in 1969 with John Abosch, he has been instrumental in the firm’s success and growth to become one of the top 200 accounting firms in the United States. He is now a Director in the firm.

Alvin is pleased to serve as Treasurer on the Board of Directors for The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools and feels the mission is tremendously important to the Maryland community. “I feel there is very little more important than education of everyone, particularly, our youngsters. I look at my own children and grandchildren and feel the education they’re receiving and continuing to receive is vital in their lives. It may sound like “apple pie and motherhood,” but a good education will go a long way in structuring one’s life,” says Katz.
Alvin resides in Baltimore County with his wife, Elaine.
