Crowe Horwath LLP, a public accounting, consulting and technology firm, has elected Wendy Cama to chair the executive committee that governs the firm.
Cama, an audit partner and CPA, is the first woman to lead this group. She has been a member of the committee since 2013.
"It is a privilege and an honor to represent my partners both internally and to the general public we serve," Cama said. "I recognize it is also my responsibility and obligation to serve in a way that provides women with a role model and inspires them to reach for goals that may be beyond what they may have imagined possible. Men and women alike have paved the way for my success, and I hope my role will encourage others in the accounting profession to continue the journey and see where it can take them."
Cama joined the firm in 1990 from Laventhol & Horwath. She was elected partner in 2003, when she relocated to Livingston, New Jersey, and opened a Crowe office there. She is now the New York local office managing partner and leads the Northeast Regional Audit group.
Cama is also involved in many national accounting and banking associations, including the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Council, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, the Center for Audit Quality, Financial Managers Society and others. She was named one of NJBIZ's Best 50 Women in Business this year.
