Angela Lyons

Controller

Thanks to the steady stream of growth that Convergent has experienced since its inception in 2009, the executive management team realized that it was time to bring all of our bookkeeping and accounting services in-house so we could provide faster, more consistent service to our clients. With her 25+ years of accounting related experience, Angela was a natural fit, and joined the team in 2013.

Angela worked for a certified public accounting firm for over 12 years, primarily in assurance services (audits) for a variety of industries including Banking, Construction, Hospitals, Animal, Agriculture, and Employee Benefit Plans (ERISA). Her ability to understand the unique needs of such a wide variety of industries was a perfect fit for Convergent, as our clients cover a wide range of industries within the nonprofit sector, each with their own unique needs.

Upon leaving public accounting, she went in to the private sector working in the Private Equity area for 10+ years, ultimately executing all aspects of accounting, tax, legal and investor relations for several investment partnerships and successfully managing all aspects of liquidating investments and dissolution of these investment partnerships. Prior to joining Convergent, Angela did consulting work for several small businesses in all aspects of their accounting function.

Angela received her B.S. in Accounting from the University of Central Arkansas, and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, as well as the Arkansas and Massachusetts Societies of Public Accountants. Her breadth of knowledge, experience and strong professional associations ensures that as Convergent grows and new needs arise, we’ll be able to continue to seamlessly deliver high quality service to all of our clients.
