Lancaster, Pa.-based RKL LLP (FY17 net revenue of $67.9 million) announced that Kathy Gutierrez was promoted to the role of director of Human Resources, effective May 1. In her new role, Gutierrez oversees all facets of the firm’s HR function, including recruiting, training, policies and benefits, performance management and other strategic team initiatives.

“Kathy’s firsthand experience working with the RKL team as well as her knowledge of our growth strategy, processes and opportunities for continued success will be of tremendous benefit to the firm,” says Edward Monborne, RKL CEO.

A certified human resources professional, Gutierrez has been a central figure in RKL’s HR department since joining the firm in 2013. She previously managed the firm’s learning and development initiatives, devising a robust slate of training opportunities to support RKL’s continually expanding capabilities. As RKL evolved beyond the traditional CPA firm into a professional services leader, Gutierrez played a key role in ensuring team members had the resources and training to bolster not only technical expertise but also an advisory and cross-disciplinary approach to client engagement.
