Congratulations to our firm administrator, Christine Golz, AAAPM! Christine received the 2015 ACE Award from the Association for Accounting Administration (AAA) at its annual recognition dinner on June 8, 2015. The event was part of the Association’s 32nd National Practice Management Conference, held at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts in Orlando, Florida.
The ACE Award stands for Achievement, Commitment and Excellence and has been awarded to some of North America’s most experienced and respected CPA firm practice managers since its 1989 inception. As the AAA website explains, “Criteria the judges use for the selection process focus on leadership and the individual’s strategic impact on the firm’s profit and growth. Candidates for the Award have made major contributions to their firms by implementing and overseeing programs that contribute to the firm’s long-term growth; help the firm meet its strategic goals; improve firm profitability; help create an employee-friendly culture that encourages long-term staff retention; and emphasize the value of entrepreneurship, leadership, continuous learning, marketing and client service skills.”
“I could not do the job I am doing without Christine,” says Weltman Bernfield’s managing member, Glenn Mikell, CPA. “She is more than just the firm administrator and goes beyond all expectations. There is no one more deserving of this award, and no one is more proud than I am. The partners at Weltman Bernfield LLC can’t thank her enough for all that she does for the firm, now and in the future.”
Christine joined Weltman Bernfield in 2009. She serves on the Management Committee and is responsible for planning, organizing, directing and controlling day-to-day operations of the firm, and for directing implementation of firm policies. She is involved in all phases of administration, personnel, finance, facilities and marketing.
