Abalos & Associates Add Partner
Sandy Abalos, managing partner of Abalos & Associates, PLLC, a full service CPA firm specializing in small and mid-size businesses, has announced that Cheryl Folkerth has been named a partner in the firm, joining Abalos and Barry Friefield.
In this position, Folkerth will manage major client engagements as well as develop the firm’s knowledge management system and its conversion to a near paperless office, which will enable staff to work remotely from locations outside of the main office.
Her core expertise includes tax planning and preparation, directing financial statement preparation, and project management, as well as software consulting and network maintenance.
Folkerth has more than 20 years of public accounting experience, including 15 years with Abalos, and has been the firm’s technology manager for the previous six years.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
