HORNE Makes Moves to Meet Client Needs in Changing Business Climate

In order to better serve clients in today’s challenging business environment, HORNE has named Bryan McDonald managing partner of the firm’s Healthcare division, and Kathy Watts as partner of accounting, advisory and tax services.

McDonald’s focus will be on large private and public clients. His team will work to maximize available federal and state dollars to make a bigger impact on access and quality while lowering costs for healthcare facilities nationwide.

Watts, who for the past 12 years led the firm’s healthcare practice, will lead and grow the firm’s managed accounting services team that concentrates on healthcare. Throughout her career she has collaborated with hundreds of business owners and leaders, providing strategic counsel and assistance ranging from initial startup to succession plans.

“We’re excited to make these changes that will surely prove to benefit our clients as well as our firm,” said Neil Forbes, HORNE’s managing partner. “We’re thankful that Kathy accepted this new role as the need for managed accounting services is so great right now. This move is in line with Bryan’s national contacts and the need to focus on access, quality and cost of healthcare on a state and national level.”
