BKD CPAs & Advisors’ (BKD) Todd Lisle has officially been named one of the honorees for the esteemed, fifth annual “Oklahoma’s Most Admired CEOs” awards, per the Journal Record Publishing Company. Lisle is the Managing Partner of BKD’s Oklahoma offices, which includes Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Enid. Lisle was chosen based on his reputation in such areas as “leadership, integrity, values, vision, commitment to excellence, financial performance and commitment to community and diversity”.

“I do, in fact, admire Todd very much as a professional and personal mentor in my life, and it comes as no surprise that others would want to honor him with this award in light of their admiration for him as well,” says Chris Zach who handles the marketing for BKD in Oklahoma. “We are happy for and proud of Todd as our leader whom we’re fortunate to work with on a daily basis.”

Honorees were named in three categories: public, private and nonprofit organizations, with an additional “Financial Stewardship” category for CFOs and the like. All honorees will be recognized at a February 6th event at the Skirvin Hilton downtown.

Lisle started in public accounting, and after a more-than-ten-year stint, started a firm with three other partners. Roughly another decade later, Lisle’s firm merged with BKD. In addition to serving on numerous community/nonprofit boards, he was elected to and is currently serving a second term on BKD’s national governing board.
