Meyers Brothers Kalicka Announces Three High-level Promotions
HOLYOKE — Meyers Brothers Kalicka, P.C. announced three promotions: Emily White to senior audit associate, Brian Benson, CPA, to senior audit associate, and John Veit to director of Marketing and Recruiting.
White has been with the firm since 2016. In her new position, she plays a leading role in the Accounting and Audit department, serving commercial, pension, and not-for-profit clients. She also prepares individual, partnership, and corporate tax returns and reviews for commercial and healthcare entities.
She attended Elms College, where she earned dual bachelor’s degrees in accounting and marketing and a master’s degree in accounting. She is a member of the Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
Benson’s overall experience in nonprofit and HUD engagements were instrumental in his promotion. As a senior audit associate, he is in charge of completing and monitoring staff on audit and review engagements of low-income housing and not-for-profit organizations.
He holds bachelor’s degrees in accounting and business management from Elms College, where he will graduate in September with an MBA with a concentration in financial planning. He then plans to sit for the certified financial planner exam, which will help him better serve clients in a variety of situations. He is a member of the Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and often volunteers with Junior Achievement and Ronald McDonald House.
In his former position as senior Marketing and Recruiting associate, Veit had been managing the day-to-day operations of marketing and recruiting for some time. The firm decided it was time for him to take the reins in all matters related to marketing, recruiting, and recruiting consulting for clients.
He earned his BBA from the Isenberg School of Management at UMass Amherst with a focus in marketing, and he is a member of the Assoc. for Accounting Marketing. He also serves his community as a reserve police officer and as team captain for the Jimmy Fund Rally Against Cancer. John is a recent BusinessWest 40 Under Forty honoree.
“Each of these promotions are well-earned and represent a creative and contemporary approach to supporting the talent that will carry the firm forward,” MBK Partner James Barrett said. “Emily, Brian, and John are all-in. Beyond their individual strengths and skill sets, they share a positive attitude, strong leadership qualities, and a determination to get things done.”
