Adanma Akujieze, CPA, CISA, CIA
Chief Financial Officer
LDG has a wonderful reputation, and it is an honor to add something to that.
Under Adanma’s leadership, the LDG accounting/finance team effectively provides and interprets reliable financial data needed for drawing meaningful conclusions and making critical business decisions. In addition, her work helps achieve compliance with financial reporting regulations, avoid unproductive use of assets by tracking spending against monthly and annual goals, reduce project profit erosion and expedite payment on receivables to maintain a strong cash flow.
Her group also promotes firmwide financial literacy to enhance the capabilities of a wide range of LDG leaders and, ultimately, reduce potential risks to the organization. Adanma and the team she leads provide transactional support to LDG’s project teams, and as highlighted above, decision support for the firm’s strategic initiatives. She also helps drive LDG’s financial governance and enterprise-wide risk management efforts. Adanma’s plans for the financial future of LDG include unapologetically marching toward innovative growth and development with an unwavering commitment to financial reporting accuracy and integrity.
In the community, Adanma serves as President of the Board of Directors for SUMMIT Early Learning, Inc., which specializes in the delivery of early childhood education services. As a member of the Editorial Board of the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) CPA Journal, Adanma is actively engaged in the determination of best methods to bring awareness to CPAs throughout the state on emerging issues and best practices. And as an immediate past board member of the PA CPA Foundation, she continues to work to raise awareness and funds for programs that inspire students to pursue careers in accounting as well as initiatives that provide education, motivation and financial support to those already pursuing the CPA designation. In 2018, she was appointed to the board of River Valley Health and Dental Center, a federally qualified health center in Williamsport, PA.
Adanma holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Science in accounting, both from Michigan State University. She is a Certified Public Accountant, Certified Information Systems Auditor and Certified Internal Auditor. Prior to joining LDG, she held finance leadership positions at Weis Markets, Inc.
