The members of KraftCPAs are pleased to announce that Lucy R. Carter, CPA, and the team of Carter Lankford, CPAs, P.C., will join our firm effective July 1.
Lucy will become a member (owner) in the firm. Sara Lankford, who has been in public accounting for more than 30 years, has decided to retire at the end of June.
Lucy has provided tax, audit, litigation support, management consulting, compliance, reimbursement and compensation services primarily to healthcare providers since 1977. She is the author of numerous articles appearing in The Journal of Accountancy, Healthcare Financial Management and Nashville Medical News. She has been recognized as one of the area’s Top 100 Health Care Leaders by the Nashville Business Journal.
Like many of our members, Lucy is actively involved in community service. She serves on the board of directors of Junior Achievement and on the audit committee of the United Methodist Publishing House. She is also a member of the Downtown Nashville Rotary Club.
Lucy explains, “In assessing the future of our firm, it became clear we would need additional resources to support future growth and provide career opportunities for our team. We had looked for the right match for some time. Kraft’s reputation for quality work, excellent client service, philanthropy and its award-winning culture make it the right choice. I have known many of the Kraft members for years and have always admired the firm. Because we share the same commitment to quality and have a similar firm culture, Kraft will just be bigger — not different — for our team and for our clients. We’re pleased to join the Kraft family.”
