New York-based CohnReznick LLP (FY14 net revenue of $508.2 million) announced the appointment of Lynne Gummo as a partner in the firm. She is a member of the government contracting industry practice, which performs traditional audit and tax services while helping contractors address complex regulatory requirements and employ industry best practices.
Based in the firm’s Tysons, Va., office, Gummo has spent the majority of her career developing deep expertise in all areas of government contracting, including attest services, FAR and CAS consulting, cost allowability and benchmarking issues, DCAA compliance, 8(a), ANC and USAID regulations and cost proposal development.
She most recently served as director of audit for an accounting firm where she was the partner leading that firm’s government contracting industry group for nearly six years. She built a sustainable government contracting practice and developed a market presence in the Northern Virginia/Metro DC area. Gummo also brings expertise in buy-side and sell-side for mergers and acquisitions consulting, financial and contract due diligence and integration.
“Lynne has an impressive track record in building and growing government contracting practices and the deep leadership skills to work with high-performance teams, and, just as importantly, she is known for her steadfast commitment to client service,” says Christine Williamson, a CohnReznick partner and the firm’s government contracting industry practice leader.
