Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman CPAs is pleased to announce that Managing Partner Jackie Oneto has won the GWSCPA’s Women to Watch Awards, Emerging Leader category. Congratulations, Jackie! These awards recognize women who exemplify leadership in firms and industry.

“I am honored to be recognized by an organization with GWSCPA’s prestige,” said Ms. Oneto. Oneto is the firm’s first female managing partner. Jackie specializes in providing nonprofit audit services and benefit plan audit services for 401(k), 401(a), 403(b), profit-sharing, pension, health and welfare plans.

The awards luncheon took place on Friday, October 25, 2013 at the JW Marriott in Washington, DC. In total, 30 nominees were submitted for GWSCPA’s first-ever Women to Watch program in three categories: Community, Emerging, and Experienced.

When selecting an auditor, the Council on Social Work Education sought a firm that could bring the greatest technical expertise to our organization. I remember my first meeting with Terri McKnight. As a new Executive Director, I felt very confident that she and Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman had a handle on the nonprofit industry and could help us make better financial decisions for our environment.
