Shellee Callahan, Peter Martin and Shasta Weatherman have been admitted to the partnership at Salina, Kan.-based K·Coe Isom (FY16 net revenue of $61 million).
Callahan serves the firm as its tax functional champion, orchestrating the firm’s tax practice across all 19 K·Coe Isom offices. She also works closely with manufacturers to offer business management and tax strategies, and she oversees clients’ business financial statements and audit services. She is based in Salina, Kan.
“Shellee is a keystone in the success of our firm’s tax practice,” says K·Coe Isom CEO Jeff Wald. “In the time she’s led our firm’s complex and specialized tax function, she’s dramatically increased the sophistication of our processes and provided excellent leadership. In addition, many customers rely heavily on Shellee’s specific technical knowledge to make decisions that allow them to be more profitable, productive and successful.”
Martin acts as a strategic finance and growth consultant, leading the K·Coe Isom team and customers of the firm to their next stage of development, specializing in assessing financial health and developing strategic plans for business leaders across the country. He splits his time between Colorado and California.
“Peter is both a visionary and an encourager,” says Wald. “Whether working with principals and team members, or thoughtfully advising outside businesses, Peter has the unique ability to see future potential and chart the path to capitalize on it. In addition to his strong technical expertise, we rely on him as a leader and a skills builder, helping others inside and outside the firm pursue and achieve their goals.”
A highly regarded business advisor and leader of the firm’s construction, real estate, architects and engineers practice, Weatherman collaborates with business owners to develop creative strategies that help them achieve goals in the most tax-effective, cost-beneficial way. Weatherman dynamically manages internal staff across the country. She is based in Salina.
“Shasta is a true team builder,” says Wald. “Her energy and positive attitude develop huge trust, both on the part of her colleagues and the companies she serves. No matter what the business might need, Shasta has the ability to assemble a great team to tackle tough issues and exceed expectations. Her excellence as a business advisor and dedication to her customers’ success set her apart as a leader others want to learn from.”
