Seymour Mann, co-founder of Mann Frankfort Stein & Lipp Advisors, which later became UHY Advisors TX, has died at the age of 87, only a few weeks after announcing his retirement from the firm he co-founded in 1971.

"Seymour was never one to want to stand in the limelight, but his presence was always felt," said Milton Frankfort, his long-time friend and one of the other founding partners of the original Houston practice, in a statement. "He was a quiet, reserved man with remarkable integrity. I'd like to think he also had the foresight to see the potential our staff had to continue to grow the firm and give us a guiding hand when we needed it. He was still actively working with a select group of clients at the time of his death and regularly attended firm meetings. He will be dearly missed by all of us who loved him and enjoyed working with him for many years."

Mann's firm changed its name to UHY Mann Frankfort Stein & Lipp Advisors in 2004 when its parent, Centerprise Advisors, changed its own name to UHY Advisors. The firm is ranked No. 12 on Accounting Today's list of the Top 100 Firms.
