Katz, Sapper & Miller has named Tim Cook, a 17-year KSM veteran, chief executive officer and president. He will succeed David Resnick, effective January 1, 2021.

Cook will be the first non-CPA to lead the 78-year-old firm. He will draw on both his training as an attorney and his experience growing two highly successful practices within the firm—the State and Local Tax Group and KSM Location Advisors, a national site selection and incentives practice, for which he’ll remain an advisory partner. 

Before joining KSM in 2003, he spent seven years at Ernst & Young as the Indiana leader of business incentives and controversy services as well as area leader of unclaimed property services. Cook also worked for five years at the Indiana Department of Revenue, where he last served as legal counsel on policy and legislation. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana University and a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from the Indiana University School of Law.

As of January 1, Resnick will succeed Curt Miller, one of KSM’s namesakes, as chair of the board. Resnick will continue serving his current client roster while also supporting Cook. In addition, he will maintain his position on numerous high-profile community boards, including vice chair of the University of Indianapolis board of trustees.
