Exclusive membership underscored by LBMC’s selection as the only recruiting and staffing firm to represent Middle and East Tennessee markets.

LBMC, a top 50 firm in the nation and the largest professional services organization in Tennessee, proudly announces that its Staffing Solutions division has joined the American Association of Finance & Accounting (AAFA). Through the exclusive membership, LBMC will represent the AAFA in Tennessee and will serve as the only staffing and recruiting firm in the state to join the prestigious organization. As Tennessee’s singular AAFA member, LBMC will represent the Middle and East Tennessee markets, including Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga, where the firm has offices.

An alliance of executive search firms specializing in the recruiting and staffing of finance and accounting professionals, the AAFA represents more than 40 markets across the U.S. and Canada. Through the AAFA, LBMC will have access to hundreds of accounting and finance professional recruiters, each of whom bring local knowledge to their searches.

The key alliance will enable LBMC to offer both its employer clients and candidates invaluable resources, contacts and connections via the AAFA network. LBMC’s employer clients will have access to pre-qualified and pre-screened candidates interested in relocating to Middle and East Tennessee, while candidates wishing to relocate to other markets will benefit from introductions to AAFA affiliates in those markets.

“We are honored to be a part of AAFA and believe this new partnership is a win-win-win-win – for our clients, candidates, AAFA and LBMC. Through this strategic professional affiliation, we will continue to provide our clients with exceptional service – but with an expanded reach and more robust resources. This partnership offers tremendous potential in our local markets as well as nationwide,” said Sherrie Whatton, President of LBMC’s Staffing Solutions division.

“We are excited about being able to leverage our contacts on behalf of our clients and fellow AAFA members and the opportunities the membership will bring. We look forward to continuing to provide unparalleled service to our clients through a positive, long-term relationship with AAFA,” Whatton said.
