Mt. Arlington, New Jersey (June 13, 2019) – The New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJCPA) has named Deirdre Hartmann, CPA, Partner at Nisivoccia LLP, an Ovation Award winner in the Women to Watch category. The Ovation Awards were announced June 12 at the NJCPA Annual Convention and Expo and distributed in seven categories: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion; Emerging Leaders; Exceptional Educators; Impact; Innovation; Lifetime Leader and Women to Watch.
The Women to Watch category applauds the growth and success of female NJCPA members for their leadership, potential, contributions and/or commitment to fostering the success of their colleagues.
Deirdre was specifically recognized for her dedication to her clients, her employees and the growth of Nisivoccia LLP. Before Deirdre began at Nisivoccia LLP in 2006, there was no official healthcare division within the firm. She came in with the insight of how physicians and healthcare facilities face numerous financial struggles on a day-to-day basis, and recognized this as a huge business opportunity for Nisivoccia LLP. With 19 years of prior experience in healthcare accounting and further exploring of other services and options to offer to these clients, Deirdre successfully built the healthcare segment from the ground up on her own. She is still the lead healthcare partner at the firm and continues to successfully grow her practice and expand the services she offers. In 2018, Deirdre also brought new business into the firm by acknowledging the need for outsourced accounting services. Deirdre has officially hired an accounting professional at the firm to assist in spearheading the new team.
Deirdre is also considered a “woman to watch” for her dedication to staying informed on the latest industry trends. In order to bring success to her clients, Deirdre tirelessly researches the newest challenges taxpayers are facing and finds creative solutions to overcome those roadblocks. Especially with the new tax laws in place, Deirdre has acted as an early advisor to her clients by determining best solutions for them through extensive tax planning analysis.
In addition to the dedication she shows her clients and the firm as a whole, another admirable trait of Deirdre’s is her enthusiasm to be a mentor to the other young women of the firm. She is passionate about taking the experiences and lessons learned in her years of accounting and passing it on to the next generation. She hopes that by being open with and available to her younger staff, she will instill the skills and work ethic they need to grow and flourish into their careers.
