VonLehman CPA & Advisory Firm announced the promotion of Deirdre Bird to director of human resources consulting.  

As director, Bird will lead a team of five consultants specialized in providing HR management and consulting solutions for clients, including talent acquisition and retention strategies, HR strategic planning and succession services, compensation design, and transformation and organizational design consulting.

“VonLehman is committed to supporting our regional businesses, and human resources consulting services present a tremendous opportunity for us to contribute to the growth of the Tri-State economy,” said Brian Malthouse, president of VonLehman. “In three years at VonLehman, Deirdre has been a catalyst for growth through her visionary leadership, strategic market analysis, and exceptional client care. Her dedication to the firm and commitment to the industry makes her the obvious choice to lead our Human Resources Consulting Group.”

Bird has accumulated over 20 years of experience providing human resources and management consultation for local companies including: Western & Southern Financial Group, The Cincinnati Enquirer and its parent company, Gannett.  

“VonLehman’s HR Consulting practice has thrived in recent years. I’m excited to lead such an amazing team that will continue to provide great client service,” said Bird. “I’m a firm believer that highly engaged employees make the customer experience. The demand for organization, talent, and transformation services across all industries – primarily, construction and real estate, manufacturing and distribution, and nonprofits – is at an all-time high. More companies are realizing that growth is achieved through investments in their people, and we’re happy to be a part of influencing their success.”

In a news release, VonLehman explained that human resources services are not often provided by traditional accounting firms, but that client demand incited the Ft. Wright-based firm to invest in its consulting business.
