“This honor is an indication that Lana Kupferschmid is as well respected throughout our profession by her peers and colleagues here at NCCPAP,” said Edward Caine, incoming president. “We congratulate her for being recognized as an influential accounting leader of 2012 in the United States.”
“To be recognized alongside many influential leaders within the profession and the President of the United States is a great honor and very humbling. This profession is very complex. Accountants face ever-changing tax laws, technology, accounting and auditing standards. For me, to have the opportunity to be an effective change-agent in this profession is truly amazing. To be recognized for that effort is quite an honor,” states Kupferschmid.
Mrs. Kupferschmid runs her own accounting practice in Fort Myers, FL. She was employed by Haskin & Sells, CPA, USV Pharmaceutical and eventually became the Vice President/Controller for Matrix Corporation in Orangeburg, NY. She has played an active role in NCCPAP since 1989. She and Aaron, her husband of 41 years, have twin daughters and enjoy visiting with their four grandchildren living in Colorado. They are both active in their community and enjoy bicycle riding and traveling in their motor home.
