Lisa Pacell

As the audit director at Merves Amon & Barsz LLC, I provide oversight of the firm’s accounting and auditing department’s professionals as well as the accounting and auditing engagements.

With nearly fifteen years of broad experience in accounting, financial reporting, internal controls, and tax, I work closely with client management to identify and resolve all accounting, tax, and financial reporting issues and develop management recommendations for improvement of the Organization’s internal control environment and accounting practices. I also work closely with client management to address new pronouncements and regulations. Prior to joining Merves Amon & Barsz LLC, I spent five years with international accounting firms and seven years with a large regional firm.

I was the lead manager on the first IPO in the Strategic Growth Management group in 3 years while working with a Big Four accounting firm. The IPO was for a biotech company with several complex accounting matters that successfully raised $80 million. My team was recognized through the region for their outstanding efforts and a smooth SEC review process.

I also served as the lead manager on the audit of a not-for-profit entity with over $11 billion in assets and on the audit of a $1 billion health system with several reporting requirements for various stand-alone sub entities.

Industries served include not-for-profit, including those required to report under yellow book and OMB A-133 regulations, governmental (Townships, Boroughs, and Authorities), professional service, distribution, manufacturing, technology, utility, precious and non- precious metals, life sciences, health care, and real estate entities, as well as, large employee benefit plans.

I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the Pennsylvania State University and is certified in Pennsylvania.

I am a past president of the Rotary Club of Haverford Township, the Treasurer Designee for a local district attorney campaign committee, and a Member of the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW).
