Mary E. MacKrell, CPA
“Add value to our firm and clients, never settle for less than my best for myself and my clients, and enjoy my work and my life every day.”
A member of the firm since 2008, Mary specializes in attest engagements and client audits. She is also responsible for managing the firm’s Uniform Guidance, conducting government and grant audits, performing peer reviews and working on internal quality control. Throughout her many successful client engagements, Mary recalls a particular client for whom she was able to apply for NYS tax credits–a strategy not picked up by the client’s prior accountant–and amend the prior years’ returns, resulting in significant refunds. Success stories like this provide the motivation for Mary to always strive to achieve the best possible outcome in each situation.
Mary chose to pursue a career in accounting because she liked and understood the balanced nature of it. She has a unique aptitude for taking complex issues and explaining them in terms business owners can relate to. These talents, along with hard work, patience and integrity, have allowed Mary to achieve many milestones and reach the level of success she enjoys today.
Mary grew up in East Greenbush, where she was one of nine children. She now lives in Greenwich with her husband, Jim. Mary loves the small town feel of Greenwich in that everybody knows your name. In her free time, she enjoys golfing, cycling and spinning.
