Supporting the Future
Alfred A. Windesheim, CPA
In 1959 Alfred A. Windesheim, CPA, was the first person in his family to graduate from college. He matriculated to the University of Baltimore in the fall of 1955 and credits the work-study program at UB with his foundation and successful career. He also credits his adjunct professors who worked in public accounting. They gave him invaluable insight into the profession.
Windesheim has always been a hard worker with a strong work ethic. As a student at UB, he attended classes during the day, as well as at night. He did this while working part time as a controller trainee, 22 hours a week, at Sears, Roebuck & Company.
"I was able to put to work what I learned at UB," says Windesheim. After graduating from UB in 1959 with a BS in accounting and a wife, he began his career with the national accounting firm of Ernst & Ernst. In 197 3, Windesheim joined the accounting firm KatzAbosch, founded by Alvin Katz and John Abosch, to lead the tax department until his retirement in 2008.
Windesheim believes in "making things better," so he gives back to the UB community to make an impact both in the city of Baltimore and in the lives of our students.
