Forvis promotes exec to Richmond market leader
Fran Randall previously was with Dixon Hughes Goodman
Forvis, the new top 10 accounting firm formed by the merger this year of Charlotte, North Carolina-based Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP and Springfield, Missouri-based BKD CPAs & Advisor, has promoted Fran Randall to Richmond market leader.
Randall will represent the company in the Richmond business community and report to Tom Hazelwood, managing partner of Forvis’ Virginia practice, which includes offices in Richmond and Norfolk.
Randall joined Dixon Hughes Goodman in December 2019 and has led the core international tax services team of 40 workers across the company, has expertise in international and domestic taxation, tax research and project management. She specializes in international tax advisory services to SEC and non-SEC U.S. multinational and foreign-owned clients, according to a news release from Forvis. Prior to joining DHG, she was with RyanSharkey in Tysons for three years and prior to that was with a Big 4 firm for more than 17 years. She’ll continue to be based in Richmond as part of Forvis’ international tax services team and her market leader role will add an additional level of responsibilities.
“I am thrilled to take on this role and show the Richmond community how Forvis can help our clients solve their complex problems by providing trusted insights and an unmatched client experience,” Randall said in a statement.
Randall is a sponsor of Forvis’ diversity and inclusion council, a member of AICPA and the Virginia Society of CPAs, as well as the National Association of Black Accountants, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. and a board member of Partnership for the Future.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting and master of tax degree from Virginia Commonwealth University.
In June, Forvis named other Virginia leaders, including Hazelwood.
