Jackson Walker partner Willie Hornberger was featured on the cover of the July/August 2013 edition of Today’s CPA, a bimonthly publication of the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants (TSCPA).
The cover story, “Follow the Leader,” provides an in-depth Q&A with Mr. Hornberger, in which he talks of his journey to being named chairman of the TSCPA. From why he chose accounting and tax law, to the two most influential mentors of his career, Mr. Hornberger discusses various aspects of his personal and professional life, and why he enjoys helping others most.
