Mitchell & Titus, the largest minority-owned accounting firm in the U.S., has named Anthony S. Kendall as its new chief executive. He will succeed founder Bert N. Mitchell, who will retire at the end of this year after leading the firm for nearly 35 years. Mitchell will, however, continue as chair until 2010.

Kendall currently serves as vice chair of client services and managing partner of the New York office. He joined the firm in 1991 after leaving Arthur Andersen, became a partner in 1996 and took over the New York office in 2000.

"Tony has contributed immensely to the success of Mitchell & Titus," Mitchell said in a statement. "I believe that he will lead the firm to great heights."
