Price will serve a two-year term as ASCSP President, effective Aug. 1, 2023. This is the first time he and elected Director of the Board Winston Shurtz will serve in their roles, while KBKG principals Lester Cook and Malik Javed will continue their terms. Cook serves as the appointed ASCSP Secretary while Javed is Chair of the Technical Standards Committee.
"I'm honored to have been elected president of such a well-respected organization, and equally proud of KBKG's presence on the board," Price said. "For years, KBKG has been looked upon as a leader in our industry and having so many of our experts represented shows how hard we have worked to get to this point."
ASCSP is the preeminent professional organization for cost segregation experts which creates rules for the industry and sets guidelines for professionals. In addition to providing ongoing education and certifications for its members, the ASCSP serves as a liaison between the industry and lawmakers.
Having joined the ASCSP in 2008, Price received his Certified Cost Segregation Professional (CCSP) designation in 2011, where he later became Chair of the Education Committee. He will finish his role as Chair of the Testing Committee prior to beginning his term as the ASCSP President.

Cook has been a member of the ASCSP since 2008 and earned his CSSP designation in 2015. He currently serves as Chair of the Ethics Committee and is a past member of the Testing Committee. He is serving his second term as secretary. Cook works out of KBKG's Chicago office and leads the Midwest region, having guided clients for over 20 years in cost segregation and fixed asset depreciation.
Javed became an ASCSP member in 2008 as well, earning his CCSP designation in 2012. While he currently heads the Technical Standards Committee, Javed has also been on the Board of Directors for four years.
