Culp, a graduate of Indiana University and Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, began her career at the City of Indianapolis, becoming the Executive Director of the Boone County Economic Development Corporation in 2000. In 2003, she joined The Indy Partnership as Director of Economic Development, moving to Cassidy Turley the next year, where she served as the national leader of the Location Advisory and Incentives Practice.

“Katie’s experience leading one of the top economic development practices in the country brings a breadth and depth to KSM Location Advisors that is both humbling and exciting,” Cook said. “KSM Location Advisors will instantly be able to utilize Katie’s multistate incentives and location advisory background to elevate the range and quality of services we provide to our clients.”

Katz, Sapper & Miller Lends a Hand to Near Eastside

Posted 12:00 AM by
Indianapolis, Ind. - Nearly 200 Katz, Sapper & Miller employees will take part in revitalizing East 10th Street located on the city’s Near Eastside today. As part of the Indianapolis-based accounting firm’s annual volunteer day of community service, this year’s project will support the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Legacy Project’s revitalization efforts for the Near Eastside.
Today also marks a monumental day for Super Bowl XLVI with 100 days left until football’s biggest game comes to Indianapolis.
More than 15 simultaneous projects will take place during the day, including several throughout the 10 East Business District. These improvement projects will include graffiti abatement; mural painting; outdoor landscaping at Moon Block Park; interior and exterior painting of three commercial properties; construction of a retaining wall in front of two Indiana Landmarks homes; and clean-up in and around the historic Rivoli Theatre.
“We are excited to be back on the Near Eastside for the second consecutive year as part of our firm’s annual Community Day,” said David Resnick, managing partner of Katz, Sapper & Miller. “As an Indianapolis-based company, we are committed to supporting this transformative project that will create a lasting legacy long after Super Bowl XLVI.”
Additionally, Katz, Sapper & Miller volunteers, in conjunction with Indy-east Asset Development and Rebuilding Together-Indianapolis, will assist in the rehabilitation of an East 10th Street home as part of the Legacy Housing Homeowner Repair program. Home improvement projects will include interior and exterior painting; installation of kitchen appliances and bath fixtures; and outdoor clean-up and landscaping.
“With the help of corporate partners like Katz, Sapper & Miller, we are reminded once again of the commitment and dedication to the revitalization on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis,” said Tony Mason, senior vice president for the 2012 Super Bowl Host Committee. “The projects completed today will continue our work to making a lasting difference to the thousands of residents who work and live in this community.”
About Katz, Sapper & Miller
As one of the top 65 CPA firms in the nation, Katz, Sapper & Miller has earned a reputation as a leader in the areas of accounting, tax and consulting services. Founded in 1942, the firm has more than 250 employees and is located in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, Indiana.

In the past, the NFL provided each Super Bowl host city with $1 million to be matched locally to renovate, expand or build a youth center to be a lasting legacy of the impact the big game has on the community. But with Indianapolis’ history of innovation and dreaming big, the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee had a much broader vision. Rather than a single building or project, Indianapolis’ Super Bowl Legacy project would include an entire section of the city—20 neighborhoods known as the “Near Eastside.”
The East 10th Street Civic Association is a not-for-profit, charitable and community-led organization dedicated to the revitalization of the 10 East Business District. Since 2002, the Civic Association has offered strategic business, economic and community development resources to many of the district’s business and property owners. Collaborating partners have included the City of Indianapolis; Local Initiatives Support Corporation; Department of Housing and Urban Development; Central Indiana Community Foundation; JPMorgan Chase Foundation; Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership; John H. Boner Community Center; Riley Area CDC; Citizens Gas & Coke Utility; and the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Near Eastside Legacy Project.
