LBMC, one of the Southeast’s leading accounting and business consulting firms, proudly announces that Courtney Bach, CPA, Shareholder in the Audit & Advisory division, and Jayme Parmakian, CPA, Shareholder in the Tax division, won the Nashville Business Journal’s 2021 Women of Influence award in the Dynamic Duo category. 

Bach and Parmakian were recognized by The Nashville Business Journal for standing out in their fields, developing a team approach between their divisions to better serve their clients, and helping drive the growth of strong female leaders within LBMC and nationally. They have been working together for over 15 years and both became shareholders at a young age in an industry that has been predominantly male.

Bach and Parmakian are not only shareholders. They help drive LBMC’s strategic vision and growth with a focus on key initiatives, talent acquisition, and client experience. By operating as a team and collaborating with service lines across LBMC, they have been instrumental in providing clients with cohesive, expansive services and enhanced efficiency to meet their needs. At the heart of this Dynamic Duo’s success is mentorship. As leaders in the Women’s Initiative Network (WIN), which is a community dedicated to attracting, retaining, developing, encouraging, and supporting women within LBMC, they lead by example for all. They are passionate about making a difference in the lives of future female leaders as they navigate work-life balance. Both are active networkers in the community with female leaders across other industries in Nashville and are inspired by the great strides being made to break down barriers and promote a cultural change.

“Congratulations to Courtney and Jayme on this outstanding achievement,” said Jeff Drummonds, CEO. “For more than 15 years, they have demonstrated extraordinary leadership to clients and team members alike, and they’ve maintained their dedication during the last 12 plus months as we’ve navigated the pandemic. I am honored to have them represent LBMC with this prestigious award.”
