Concannon Miller Shareholder Erica Bortz, CPA, has been featured in Authority Magazine’s Female Leaders of Finance series.
Bortz started as a bookkeeper with Concannon Miller in 1995, rising through the ranks to become the firm’s first female shareholder in 2009. She was the architect of the firm’s successful employee benefit plan audit practice and is a leading partner in the firm’s top niche of providing accounting and tax services to McDonald’s franchisees.
Authority Magazine features interviews with a wide variety of leaders, including celebrities and executives from Fortune 500 companies.
In the interview, Bortz shares how she got into the field and offers advice for other women working in finance. Four of Concannon Miller’s 11 shareholders are women – or 36% – which is far higher than the industry average of 24%.
“Helping my clients be successful in their businesses is my greatest professional joy and I wanted to become a partner so I could serve as their most trusted advisor,” Bortz says in the profile.
