Frazier & Deeter Expands Women’s Business Leadership Program

Atlanta-based Frazier & Deeter (FY13 net revenue of $53 million) announced the expansion of the firm’s women’s business leadership program to Nashville, Tenn., and Tampa, Fla.

The Frazier & Deeter women’s business leadership program was created in 2010 to support women business leaders in pursuing their personal and business goals. The program includes thought leadership events that the firm organizes as well as a blog series and sponsorships of organizations that support women executives or women-led businesses.

“The Frazier & Deeter women’s business leadership program supports women executives and business owners by helping them share ideas, connect with their peers and learn about strategies and resources that will help them achieve their goals,” says Seth McDaniel, MP at Frazier & Deeter.

Partner LeighAnn Costley, who has been a leader of Frazier & Deeter’s program since 2012, says, “The firm is excited to expand our support of women executives and business owners to our new markets as we grow. We’ve gotten strong positive feedback from the women executives of Atlanta and we hope to have a similar impact in Nashville and Tampa Bay.”

In early 2015 Frazier & Deeter expanded the program’s thought leadership event series to Nashville. The leader of the women’s business leadership program in Nashville is tax partner Debbie Willett.

“It was amazing to see the warm reception our women’s program received in Nashville,” says Willett. “We look forward to helping address some of the strategic needs of women professionals and business owners as the program builds.”

The firm has also expanded the program to Tampa, with the sponsorship of Working Women of Tampa Bay. The program in Tampa Bay will be led by audit senior manager Heather Brown. The firm expects to begin offering panel events for women in the second half of this year.
