Our Philosophy

The underlying philosophy of our firm is “Growth from Within.” This mindset provided the foundational underpinning of the Management structure that represents our Professional Resources and Regional offices and Administrative functions as we grew from 5 employees to over 300 in the past 35 years. The current Board of Directors is made up of Founding Principals and Next Generation Leaders who, without exception, came from within our organization. Our 10 professional disciplines evolved from both local and international experience and are found in our 23 fully-staffed offices located throughout the continental United States. As a result, we have employees with complementary professions who are known to each other and who are able to put all of this experience to best serve our Clients worldwide.

Executive Leadership

100% Employee Owned Company

MKA is a 100% Employee Owned Company.

During our 30-year history, the Principals of MKA embarked on a purposeful program of adding professional talent that complements each other in providing most of the services our Clients required under one roof. This resulted in 10 different professional groups that were allowed to define themselves and grow at their own pace. As a result, MKA has emerged with a strong foundation of employees that not only know the business but also know how to work in concert with each other. The experience and collaborative abilities demonstrated by the personnel, which cover both professional and geographic aspects of our company, paved the way to the inevitable destiny……. becoming a 100% Employee-Owned company.

MKA’s approximately 300 employees are located in 23 fully staffed offices throughout the United States. Now, as an ESOP, our Clients will have the added benefit from a renewed commitment to the team spirit of this organization. As part of an ESOP, every employee has even more motivation to excel and be accountable to each other. This personal commitment by each employee, complemented by the communications infrastructure within our organization, will provide a platform for continued growth and service to our Clients throughout the United States and worldwide.
