Board of Directors
Along with being a CPA, Martha is a Certified Global Management Accountant (CGMA) and is a longtime member of American Society of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Rhode Island Society of Certified Public Accountants (RISCPA). She has held numerous leadership positions within these organizations, including past president of RISCPA’s board of governors, chair of its professional ethics committee and a highly-coveted seat on the AICPA Council in 2012. She is also an advisory board member for the Center for Women and Enterprise (CWE) and serves on the CWE audit committee. Additionally, Martha is a 1991 graduate of Leadership Rhode Island (LRI), where she served for many years as chair of its board of governors. LRI recognized her remarkable efforts by naming her 2012 Volunteer of the Year.
Martha’s experience and passion for providing business and tax services for women-owned businesses also led her to help found the LGC+D’s Women Count Initiative. This unique program is designed to support the female staff members of LGC+D with mentoring and leadership training as well as provide professional services specially tailored for the needs of women-owned and operated businesses.
With a B.S. in Business Administration from Providence College, Martha, a native of Lincoln, Rhode Island, chose to pursue a career in accounting because she believed she could help people understand their business and personal affairs and this knowledge would empower them to success. She says, “I love helping clients understand complex matters and make the connection to the impact of these matters on their organizations.” Within the firm, she particularly enjoys teaching and mentoring staff members: “I just love seeing the light bulb go on.”
In her leisure hours, Martha enjoys entertaining, wine, reading and real gardening – not the kind that wins awards, but the kind that gets your hands dirty. She and her husband, Dennis, have been married since 1982. They have three children and live in West Greenwich.
Secret Super Power: Martha Hultzman is a master of illusion. While she may stand at only 5’1”, her devotion to high heels allows her to rub shoulders with the best of them. Oh, and she also has an irresistibly contagious laugh.
