Buffalo Business First - September 26, 2014:

A partner in the tax advisory group at Dopkins & Co. LLP is being recognized by the New York State Society for Certified Public Accountants for his local volunteer work.

Gerard Mazurkiewicz is the recipient of the 2014 Michael H. Urbach CPA Community Builders Award, NYSSCPA announced Friday. Mazurkiewicz was selected based on his deep involvement with the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, an organization for which he helped raise $31 million in recent years for initiatives in Western New York.

“(Mazurkiewicz’s) unwavering commitment to the Buffalo region and inspiring generosity of time, talent and treasure truly distinguishes him as a remarkable person,” said Clotilde Perez-Bode Dedecker, president and CEO of the Community Foundation.

The Community Builders Award is named in honor of the late Michael Urbach, the first CPA to serve as the New York State Commissioner of Taxation and Finance and the former chief financial officer of the New York Power Authority. NYSSCPA and the New Council of Nonprofits Inc. co-sponsor the annual award, which recognizes CPAs who serve on boards of charitable organizations. It will be presented on Oct. 9 in New Paltz.

Mazurkiewicz is past president of the Buffalo chapter of NYSSCPA. He joined Dopkins as a partner in 2004 following a two-year retirement from KPMG LLP, where he worked for more than 32 years. At Dopkins, he provides income and estate tax planning services to high-net worth clients and offers business and succession planning services to private companies.

In addition to the Community Foundation, Mazurkiewicz has also volunteered his time at Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, the Buffalo chapter of the American Red Cross, Kaleida Health Foundation, Hilbert College, University of Buffalo Foundation and The Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo.
