MACPA names new CEO | Accounting Today

Rebekah J. Brown, a 10-year veteran of the Maryland Association of CPAs who most recently served as the association’s director of development, has been named the organization’s next president and CEO by the MACPA’ board of directors.

She will succeed Jackie Brown, who will be retiring on June 30, 2022, following a 42-year career with the association.

“After the very thorough work of our Search Committee, which interviewed candidates from across the country, we are proud to welcome Rebekah as the MACPA's new CEO,” said Herbert Geary, a partner with UHY Advisors and incoming chair of MACPA's board. “Her leadership skills are as impressive as her passion and commitment to the profession, and we are fortunate to have her.”


Rebekah Brown joined MACPA in 2012 and was named the organization’s manager of membership development and engagement in 2014. She then became the director development in 2018 and helped the association through the COVID-19 pandemic, the departure of CEO Tom Hood, and the sale of the Business Learning Institute to the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants. Prior to joining MACPA, Brown served as senior auditor with SC&H Group in Sparks, Maryland.

“As a passionate CPA in the great state of Maryland and a proud product of the MACPA’s vast community of leaders, I couldn't be more excited about the opportunity to continue work with our members, partners and team as we, together, build an even better, future-ready profession,” she said in a statement. “I believe in this profession and in this community. The MACPA’s mission, vision and values — co-created in collaboration with the MACPA team and volunteer leaders — inspire me every day.”
