Managing Partner, Mengel Metzger Barr & Co.

Years in current role: 8

What has been your organization’s biggest success over the past year?

Our continued growth through our merger with Marvin & Company is something we are proud of, but by far our biggest accomplishment was being named a Best Place to Work for DEI by the Rochester Business Journal!

What are your expectations for the next 6-12 months?

To stay true to our core service offerings and continue to help our clients succeed in a challenging economic climate.

What advice would you give somebody just starting out in your industry?

Give it a chance! The profession has changed so much in the last five years. It is an environment that is conducive to learning a ton in a very short time and one that provides great flexibility and autonomy.

What is one personal goal you have for the next year?

To be healthier!

What are your favorite things about Rochester?

I grew up downstate but have spent the last 25 years in Rochester. I tell people all the time when asked to compare that life in Rochester is just easier. Easier to commute, dine out, afford a house, enjoy great hiking trails, golf and on and on. Also, the people are awesome.
