Staff & Community Updates

Help isn’t only defined in a business context. We encourage our teams to invest in our communities, each other, and ourselves. Here are some of the ways we’re enhancing our efforts to support our local charities by continuing our roles as nonprofit agency leaders and investing in our individual growth and development.

  • Jonathan Abbotoy has earned the notable Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) credential. CFEs are trained professionals who possess a unique set of diverse skills in preventing, detecting and investigating fraud. They are respected in every industry, recognized around the world and feared by every fraudster.
  • Rick Fedorovich has been unanimously recommended as the 2023-2024 chair-elect candidate of the Board of Directors for The Ohio Society of CPAs. Rick will serve as the Board’s Chair during the 2024-2025 year and then the Past Chair the following year.  Rick was also honored as this year’s H. Peter Burg Economic Development Leadership Award recipient by the Greater Akron Chamber.
  • Mindy Marsden was re-appointed to the Executive Committee of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) Cleveland, a networking organization comprised of Northeast Ohio (NEO) professionals that engage in middle-market mergers and acquisitions and broader corporate finance.
