Louisville, Ky.-based MCM CPAs & Advisors (FY18 net revenue of $56.8 million) has transitioned the MP role to Brad Smith, the firm’s former assurance services team leader. Smith, who has been with the firm for the past 17 years, is replacing Diane Medley, who will assume the role of executive chairman at MCM.

They’ve been working together on the transition for the past year. “The accounting profession is evolving, and we’re responding to those changes, but I want to ensure we’re always building on the strong foundation provided by our firm’s founders,” Smith says.

Smith will lead the strategic direction of the firm for its nearly 350 employees who work across its five offices in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio. He will steward MCM from a business perspective, lead client service and growth initiatives, and work with the firm’s partners and industry and service leaders to set and achieve short- and long-term objectives.

In her new role as executive chairman, Medley will remain with MCM full time and continue to work with select clients, manage firm governance and lead several strategic initiatives. She will also take on a strategic leadership role with Meritrust Wealth Management, an MCM-affiliated financial services firm that she originally founded. She will continue to represent the firm through her various community leadership roles.

Smith’s primary focus with clients is middle market growth-oriented companies in the manufacturing, distribution, services and construction industry niches. He is also active in community endeavors.

“I know that Brad will always have the best interest of MCM’s clients, partners and team members in the forefront of his vision and execution of strategy for the firm,” says Medley.
