Said Walsh College President and CEO Stephanie Bergeron: “The value of a Walsh education is very evident to Mr. Moore, a proud Walsh alum, and Doeren Mayhew, a valued partner who actively recruits our strong students.”

Tim Moore earned his bachelor of accountancy degree from Walsh College in 1979, and was hired by Doeren Mayhew a year later. Moore then left for Houston, Texas in 1984 and started his own accounting firm, T.R. Moore & Co.

With the help of Sandra, who managed marketing and public relations for the firm, Tim Moore grew the firm into an award-winning practice, which then merged with Doeren Mayhew in 2010.
