New York City, NY - Nanette Lee Miller, CPA, Partner-in-Charge of West Coast Assurance Services for Marcum LLP and co-leader of the national accounting firm's Modern Family & LGBT Services Practice group, has been elected 2016 President of the International Women's Forum Northern California chapter.
"It is especially important at this time globally that women leaders be heard," Ms. Miller said. "It is a time for action, not re-action, with creative solutions to our world problems."
The International Women's Forum builds better global leadership across careers, continents and cultures by connecting the world's most preeminent women of significant and diverse achievement. The organization is comprised of more than 6,000 dynamic women leaders in 33 countries and 74 forums around the world.
IWF Northern California is a legacy chapter of the IWF, which was founded in 1982. Chapter members range from entrepreneurs and corporate executives to artists, humanitarians and political leaders.
Ms. Miller is well known as a professional services leader and active community member, serving on numerous nonprofit boards. She has more than 30 years of experience in public accounting, providing assurance, accounting and business consulting services to publicly and privately held businesses, as well as not-for-profit organizations. She is a trusted business advisor for start-up and emerging companies, as well as troubled entities that require restructuring.
She founded Marcum LLP's Modern Family & LGBT Services group in 2012, a full year before the historic overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act by the U.S. Supreme Court. Her astute recognition of the complex and distinct Tax and Estate Planning needs of the LGBT community established Marcum as the national thought leader in this specialty area.
Ms. Miller is a frequent media guest, as well as a panelist and speaker at many industry conferences and other events. She has appeared on Bloomberg TV and Fox News and has been quoted by CNN Money, Wall Street Journal, BBC, and the New York Times, among others. In 2015, she was named one of the Most Influential Women in Business by the San Francisco Business Times for the third consecutive year.
