In Memoriam

Frank Caccavale

Frank worked at the National Bureau for 28 years. Over these years, Frank made a lasting impact at our firm and his absence continues to be deeply felt by his National Bureau colleagues, family, friends, neighbors and the property tax profession. Frank was a tremendous teacher and mentor to many of our staff here at the National Bureau. His knack for story telling will definitely be missed as well.

Frank attended the University of Illinois studying Architecture, was a member of the National Association of Independent Fee Appraisers and has held an IFA designation since 1972. Frank was also a State of Illinois Certified General Appraiser.

Dean McQuown

Dean made a lasting impact at our firm and his absence has been deeply felt by his colleagues and the property tax profession.

Dean was a graduate of the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio, received his Master of City and Regional Planning and his MBA from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Dean was a Certified Member (CMI) of the Institute for Professionals in Taxation (IPT) and was a Certified Illinois Assessing Officer (CIAO), and a member of the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO). Dean joined the National Bureau in 1994 after holding numerous executive positions at IAAO, including Director of Professional services and Director of Research and Training.

For over 80 years, our team has focused on providing our clients a unique tax consulting experience.
