Dana E. Mountjoy
Dana brings a unique blend of both analytical and creative skills to her work. That’s not the typical-sounding resume of an accounting major but that’s exactly the type of approach she seeks to bring to her clients. Dana applies an entrepreneurial mindset to typical financial and business issues in ways that often lead to a fresh approach to financial strategies.
Before joining BMF in 2014, Dana spent over five years at a Big 4 firm. Her diverse experience includes a variety of consulting projects from internal controls and inventory reconciliation to revenue recognition, forecasting and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance readiness for a variety of publicly and privately held businesses.
Prior to her election as Partner, Dana was a Senior Manager in our Assurance and Advisory Services department. Throughout her career, she maintained close relationships with her clients to provide excellent service, savvy recommendations and crisp execution of best practices to drive performance improvements in their business.
Dana’s talent comes from leveraging the basic principles of accounting with insights and understanding of the people involved in her clients’ businesses. She is skilled at interpersonal team-building and achieving consensus even toward difficult decisions and brings a total understanding of the financial as well as interpersonal sides of the decisions her clients make. She answers the “so what” of accounting and assurance issues by tying all the pieces together to help operations and C-level management understand their business’s controls, success, and sustainability.
Dana serves as a member and advocate of the firm’s Strategic Planning Steering Committee, which is responsible for maintaining the organizational vision. She received her bachelor’s degree in accounting from Grove City College and serves as treasurer at The Blick Center and serves on the board of Main Street Wadsworth, an organization dedicated to the revitalization and restoration of its historic downtown.
