(Charlotte, NC) – Melissa Boone, Office Managing Partner of accounting, tax, and advisory firm CohnReznick’s Charlotte office, has been honored by CPA Practice Advisor to be included among their 40 Under 40 honorees for 2014.

Melissa leads the Firm’s Charlotte office, where she supervises and mentors managers and staff, as well as serving as an audit accountant. Melissa specializes in the real estate and not-for-profit industries, as well as providing services to clients in a variety of other industries. She provides financial statement audits, tax return preparation, evaluation of internal controls and compliance with OMB A-133. She also works to keep her clients updated on government required standards and performs various agreed upon procedures engagements.

“Throughout her career with CohnReznick, Melissa has been a go-to leader for office, regional, and national initiatives,” said George Klenovich, South/Central Regional Managing Partner. “In addition, her professional accomplishments are matched by her commitment to the community and her role as a mentor to other professionals.”

Melissa completed the Leadership Charlotte program, which focuses on building Charlotte community leaders through inclusive leadership development as part of Class 33. Over the years, she has also volunteered in several charitable and professional organizations including sitting on the AICPA Not-for-Profit Committee, in which she helped review potentially new professional standards for the industry as well as educate local not-for-profits on accounting issues. She currently devotes time to serving on the board for Community Link, a local not-for-profit organization which focuses on moving homeless to housing and helping educate on financial literacy and home ownership.

Melissa is also the co-creator of the Working Moms of Ft. Mill group—an organization that provides a network for working mothers to share their experiences and challenges. She is also active in CohnReznick’s WomenCAN: Collaborative Advocacy Network for Women.

In 2012, Melissa was named to the Charlotte Business Journal’s 40/40 awards. She was also named a Business Women Extraordinaire by Business Leader Magazine.
