Industry Veteran Will Help Lead Baltimore Office

January 13, 2010 (Bethesda, Md.) – Reznick Group, a top 20 national CPA firm, today announced that Mary Beth Norwood, CPA and Principal, has been named as the new Baltimore office Co-Managing Principal. She succeeds Joel Cohn, whose term as Office Co-Managing Principal expired. Norwood will partner with current Co-Office Managing Principal Gary Perlow to continue overseeing the growth of the Baltimore office while helping to promote outstanding client service and employee development.

Norwood has been in public accounting for over 22 years, 17 years with Reznick Group. Throughout her career, she has made outstanding contributions to the firm locally, and on a nationwide basis. In the fall of 2003, Norwood relocated from Baltimore to Sacramento, Calif. to help open Reznick Group’s first west coast office. She played an integral role in the initial staffing decisions, training and development of Sacramento office employees, and building the foundation that has enabled that office to grow from 17 employees to more than 60 during her tenure. In addition, Norwood served as the audit professional practice leader for the office. She returned to the Baltimore office in the fall of 2007, focusing her efforts on east coast clients and the firms’ service to the local marketplace.

”Mary Beth has proven herself to be a very valuable asset to Reznick Group and our clients. Over the past 17 years, her tremendous contributions to the firm on both coasts are widely recognized. I am delighted to have Mary Beth assume this important leadership position within the Baltimore office,” said Ken Baggett, Reznick Group Managing Principal and CEO.
