Mitchell & Titus, the largest minority-owned accounting firm in the U.S., has named Anthony S. Kendall as its new CEO.

Kendall (pictured) will replace founder Bert N. Mitchell, who will retire at the end of this year after leading the firm for nearly 35 years. Mitchell will continue as chairman until 2010, however.

Kendall currently serves as vice chairman of client services and managing partner of the New York office. He has worked for the firm for 17 years, joining in 1991 after leaving Arthur Andersen. Kendall became a partner in 1996 and took over the New York office in 2000.

“Tony has contributed immensely to the success of Mitchell & Titus and he is passionate about the firm and its mission,” said Mitchell in a statement. “I believe he will lead the firm to great heights in the years ahead.”
