SobelCo, a leading provider of tax, accounting and advisory services, recently announced it has named Tara Del Gavio, CPA and Chris Martin, CPA, CGMA as Members of the Firm.
Del Gavio joined SobelCo in 2018 as a senior manager in the Nonprofit and Social Services Practice. For over two decades, Del Gavio has been actively engaged with various types of nonprofit organizations, ranging from social services to higher education, to foundations and trade associations. Del Gavio has a depth of expertise in organizations that address mental health, housing and urban development, low-income tax credits and charitable foundations.
Martin has enjoyed working with mid-sized, privately held businesses, many in the food and beverage sector, throughout his career. Since joining SobelCo in 2015 as a manager in the Audit Practice, Martin has helped clients gain an accurate understanding of their financial situation. He assists clients with their financial reporting needs, provides strategic planning for their corporate and individual income taxes, and takes an active role in consulting on major financial decisions.
Del Gavio, a graduate of Felician University and a certified public accountant, said she was grateful for the opportunity of her new position at SobelCo.
“I believe strongly that self-growth and an overall respect and fondness for our firm and for what our reputation stands for in the community, are the two key factors that propel me, not only to accept the responsibility as a Member of the Firm, but to always do my best to earn my colleagues trust as a leader while at the same time fulfilling my own career goals,” Del Gavio said.
Martin, a graduate of William Paterson University, is both a certified public accountant and a chartered global management accountant (CGMA). Becoming a partner at an accounting firm has always been his professional goal, he said.
“Everything I have done to this point was with that goal in mind,” Martin said. “I am extremely proud to call myself a partner at SobelCo and have a seat at the table with so many great leaders whom I have had the privilege of learning from and working with over the past several years.”
Alan Sobel, managing member of SobelCo, said the firm’s decision to promote Del Gavio and Martin effective Jan. 1 underscores SobelCo’s commitment to embrace change and fresh perspectives.
“Both seasoned professionals bring a unique background, industry experience, and a passion for excellence that enhances the firm, our staff, and most importantly, the community and the clients we serve,” Sobel said.
