Collins Barrow WCM LLP announces new Managing Partner

Winchester, ON – Collins Barrow WCM LLP recently appointed Kathy Byvelds as Managing Partner. A partner at the firm’s Winchester office since 2004, Kathy brings a wealth of experience to the role. While her practice has focused on tax advisory, she also has expertise in entrepreneurial services and succession planning.

“I’m proud to be serving our firm and its clients in this capacity,” says Kathy. “At Collins Barrow we are deeply committed to providing service excellence and the very best in available resources to ensure that our clients achieve their business goals.”

Currently, Kathy is one of two female Managing Partners in Collins Barrow’s national network of 22 member firms. Staffed by four partners and 32 professionals, Collins Barrow WCM LLP has offices in Winchester, Morrisburg and Carleton Place.

Kathy succeeds Brian Mann, who was Managing Partner since 1994. At the end of this year, Brian will retire following an accomplished career.

“Brian has set the bar high and helped establish our reputation for actionable solutions and objective advice,” Kathy adds. “He’s also has had a key role in developing the next generation of accountants by coaching many of the professionals here at Collins Barrow.”

“Kathy joined our firm just one year after I became Managing Partner and I’ve had the benefit of working closely with her over time,” says Brian. “In building my own succession plan, I have every confidence that she will continue to lead the firm to future growth.”
