CPA Carolyn D’Anna, chief operating officer of SobleCo.

SobelCo, a Livingston-based certified public accounting and advisory firm recently announced that Carolyn J. D’Anna, CPA, has joined the firm to serve as its first chief operating officer.

Recognizing that with growth comes change and new responsibilities, the importance of bringing an experienced COO on board became even more apparent than ever, SobelCo said in a statement. The SobelCo leadership team agreed unanimously that D’Anna has the balanced blend of practical professional service experience, coupled with executive level operations capabilities to make her the perfect choice for the firm’s first COO.

D’Anna had spent her entire career at JH Cohn (the predecessor to CohnReznick), advancing to an accounting and audit partner, and ultimately assumed responsibility as the chief human resource officer at the firm, which is one of the nation’s largest accounting firms.  A graduate of Pace University, D’Anna is a licensed CPA and a recipient of the NJCPA Diversity and Inclusion Impact Award.

SobelCo, which also has offices in Woodcliff Lakes, New Jersey and Paoli, Pennsylvania, is ranked as the 10th fastest growing accounting firm in the United States for 2019 by Accounting Today.

“Our firm has flourished for more than six decades since we were founded in 1956 in Newark, New Jersey,” said SobelCo Managing Partner Alan Sobel. “We have enjoyed consistent organic growth over the years and combined with several significant mergers, we have steadily expanded our service offerings and presence in the community.”
