Aug 29, 2016

(Charlotte, N.C.) – GreerWalker Partner and CPA Sandi Thorman has been selected as a 2016 Brava Award Winner with SmartCEO, a once-in-a-lifetime honor for high-impact female business leaders.

Thorman will accept her award onstage during a Sept. 13 ceremony at The Fillmore in Charlotte before an expected crowd of more than 300. She also will be profiled in the September edition of SmartCEO magazine.

The Brava Awards honor female business leaders in three categories: CEOs, executive directors of nonprofits, and C-suite executives. Each year, an independent committee of local business leaders selects winners based on company growth, community impact and mentoring. Honorees display entrepreneurial spirit, passion for giving back to the community, leadership and mentoring.

Thorman, who assists closely held companies and their owners with tax planning and compliance needs, joins a 2016 list of accomplished female executives and CEOs. She said she’s humbled by the honor.

“I feel privileged that my role at GreerWalker enables me to help Charlotte-area companies and individuals surpass their financial goals,” said Thorman, who leads GreerWalker LLP’s Estate, Gift and Trust Practice as well as its Financial Services Practice. “It’s invigorating to be recognized by my contemporaries and to be included in such esteemed company.”

Thorman has more than 15 years’ tax and business advisory experience with a strong focus on the financial services industry – which includes investment advisors, private equity funds, mortgage bankers, investment banking firms, broker dealers and insurance companies. She has significant expertise in entity selection, entity structure, ownership changes, mergers and acquisitions, succession planning and estate planning.
