Headshot of Megan Malone.

While most people try to keep water out of their basement, I purposely added about 300 gallons. I’m a saltwater hobbyist with a large reef tank that’s home to more than 20 types of coral and 20-plus fish.

Experience

I assist clients with the management of their tax liabilities and serve as a tax advocate on their behalf. My experience includes providing assistance with quarterly and annual tax provisions; international reporting packages; international, state, and local tax matters; and individual and corporate tax planning. My clients range from internationally owned consolidated entities with multistate activity to private equity or family-owned entities in the manufacturing, distribution, and service industries.

I was attracted to this career for the variety of work and the relationships with others. After all, tax isn’t sitting at a desk behind a computer screen. It’s getting out of the office and being on location. It’s building strong relationships with individuals, touring facilities, and looking for tax-saving opportunities that businesses can take advantage of.

In the more than 10 years I’ve been with the firm, I would consider my greatest accomplishments to be helping build mentors and advance the tax team in Cleveland. Working alongside the younger staff has always been one of my top areas of focus, and seeing the team grow has been a highlight in my career.

I belong to the AICPA, the Ohio Society of CPAs, and Women in Manufacturing. I received my B.A. and my M.B.A. in accounting from Baldwin-Wallace College.

When I’m not working for clients, I enjoy working outside, attending sporting events, crafting, and spending time with family.
