Earl Maxwell Endowment established by Maxwell, Locke & Ritter

Earl Maxwell grew up in Houston, Texas and attended the University of Houston where he received his Bachelor of Business in Accounting. His innovative, non-traditional experience grew out of the process he and the partners of Maxwell Locke & Ritter followed as they established and built a different type of firm…..a firm dedicated to serving people. The firm’s philosophy says it all: “We care for our clients and we care for each other.” Mr. Maxwell is the author of Service Prosperity and Sanity – Positioning the Professional Service Firm for the Future. Earl has spent most of his time in three areas; family, community and business. He has been able to merge these interests by helping to establish a family-friendly workplace and working in the community to support various educational and health and human services programs. He is proudest of his partnership with his wife in raising their two sons.

It had long been part of Earl’s plan to eventually leave public accounting and devote his time to the community. True to this vision, he retired from Maxwell Locke & Ritter in 2007 and became the CEO of St. David’s Community Health Foundation.
