FORT SMITH, Arkansas, November 20, 2018 — Landmark Member Mike Carroll has been named to the Arkansas 250, an elite group of Arkansans who influence the way we live, learn and do business in the state. Carroll is profiled in the 2018 edition of the Arkansas 250, published by Arkansas Business.

For the past 40 years, Carroll has worked in the accounting industry, specializing in family-owned businesses. His firm, Taylor Carroll and Frye, merged with Beall Beattie and Thompson in 1990, creating what eventually became Beall Barclay & Company. This year, Beall Barclay & Company became Landmark PLC, Certified Public Accountants. Over the years, Carroll has been instrumental in growing the firm and creating its culture. He currently serves as Chairman of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, Chairman of the Transformation Advisory Board and is President of the Arkansas Society of Certified Public Accountants.

“This profession has been very good to me,” said Carroll. “I have had the opportunity to work with great clients who have become dear friends. I am grateful that Landmark supports a culture that encourages our team members to be deeply involved in our communities. This has allowed me to be involved with a number of worthwhile activities in addition to my responsibilities to our clients. The opportunities to serve my profession as well as assist Governor Asa Hutchinson with important initiatives have been particularly rewarding.”

“We looked for influencers making an impact in a variety of professional and nonprofit endeavors at the local, regional and state levels,” said Arkansas Business Special Publications Publisher Christopher R. Bahn. “Included is a mix of household names and rising stars. Some are comfortable effecting change in the spotlight, while others prefer for their influence and accomplishments to remain behind the scenes.”
