Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to work with the exceptional leadership team at MorganFranklin and many talented, motivated practitioners who have given me opportunities to continue to learn and take on increasingly bigger challenges.
McLean, Virginia (PRWEB) March 10, 2015
Consulting magazine has named MorganFranklin Consulting Director Melaine Amendola a winner of the publication’s prestigious “Rising Stars of the Profession” Achievement Awards, which annually recognize 35 the best young talents in the consulting profession under age 35. Since 2012, Amendola has served in the Public Sector Market at MorganFranklin, a leading business consulting and technology solutions company based in McLean, Va.
Amendola is profiled in the March 2015 issue of Consulting magazine for Excellence in Client Service, in recognition of her more than 12 years of experience providing federal financial management consulting to numerous military services within the Department of Defense (DoD). The magazine spotlights all 35 award winners honored in the categories of Excellence in Client Service, Consulting Leadership, Health Care, Energy, Public Sector, Technology, Retail, and Financial Services.
“I am honored to be named one of Consulting magazine’s ‘Rising Stars of the Profession’ and to be in such impressive company with the best and brightest in the consulting industry,” Amendola said. “Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to work with the exceptional leadership team at MorganFranklin and many talented, motivated practitioners who have given me opportunities to continue to learn and take on increasingly bigger challenges.”
Within two years of joining MorganFranklin, Amendola was promoted twice and is now a Director leading the firm’s Department of the Navy (DoN) and U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) accounts. She has extensive experience spanning all aspects of financial management accounting operations, financial statements preparation and analysis, internal controls and A-123, audit readiness, and systems support. She is deeply versed in DoD financial management and regulations, including the Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness (FIAR) Plan, Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), and Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). Amendola has worked alongside some of the highest-ranking military officials and government civilians at several commands across the U.S. Prior to joining MorganFranklin, she served for 10 years in a variety of federal consulting roles supporting DoD agencies at PricewaterhouseCoopers and Booz Allen Hamilton. She is a Certified Defense Financial Manager (CDFM) and active member of the American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC).
“With so many outstanding nominations for just 35 awards, Melaine is in rare company—and I cannot think of a more dedicated and deserving professional,” said Chris Mann, Managing Director and Accounting & Transaction Services Lead at MorganFranklin Consulting. “She is highly motivated and passionate about serving her clients and the federal government mission, always viewing her work as a way of giving back to the warfighters and civilians who support our country. Melaine embodies energy and commitment, and she is truly a rising star in the consulting industry.”
