GBQ is pleased to announce that Samantha Dye, CPA, has been promoted to Senior Manager, Finance. Sam is based in our Columbus, OH office.

“After transitioning from an Assurance Manager to Controller in August 2016, Sam made an immediate impact assisting in a large system conversion and taking the lead on user training. Since then, she has added a high degree of organization, controls and leadership within our finance department. Throughout the past year, her work managing cash flow and accounts receivable in an extremely difficult business environment was exemplary and helped to minimize the impact of the pandemic,” stated Shaun Powell, Director of Finance.

Sam joined GBQ in 2010 after obtaining her Bachelor’s degree from The Ohio State University. She began her career in the Assurance department, serving clients in a variety of industries, including nonprofit, manufacturing, restaurant, and service industries. She was also part of the employee benefit plan audit group, managing audits for defined contribution plans and defined benefit plans. In 2016, Sam transitioned her career and joined GBQ’s internal finance department. She has since focused her efforts on working capital management, the implementation of new processes and controls, and financial reporting.

Sam is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants.
