Lee Ann Collins, CPA, a partner at Lane Gorman Trubitt, PLLC ("LGT") and a well-known leader in the Dallas/Fort Worth accounting industry, has been named the fourth managing partner of LGT in its 65 years of business.
She will support the partners to ensure they have all that’s needed to be successful while overseeing the day-to-day operations and long-term planning for the firm.
“The firm is now my client,” said Collins. “My goal is to properly advise and lead the firm in a way that preserves our strong reputation and retains our best employees.”
Mrs. Collins replaces Bob Knight who served as the managing partner for 15 years. Knight will remain a partner at LGT to help assist her as needed to guarantee a smooth transition.
“LGT’s success has always been based on the team efforts of our people. Inevitably, any change in leadership will take us in new directions. Lee Ann’s leadership style brings out the best in those with which she works, and I know she will be a positive influence in guiding LGT going forward,” said Knight.
Mrs. Collins acquired her BBA in accounting from Abilene Christian University. After graduating in 1982, she began working primarily on clients in the construction industry at Dohm & Wolff which merged into LGT in 1987. She began working with LGT in the audit department but later transitioned to the accounting and consulting department (ACS), where she became the department leader. Since, she has made a large impact on the overall success of the firm and held various leadership roles at the firm and with various construction organizations in the Dallas community.
