SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Dana Borys, Director in BPM’s Corporate Tax Practice, has been recognized by the San Francisco Business Times as one of the Most Influential Women in Bay Area Business for 2017.
The annual Most Influential Women in Business Awards celebrates outstanding women leaders across a number of industries including, real estate, tech, law, finance, education, and many others. These women lead within their organizations as well as their communities.
With over 12 years of public accounting experience, Dana has been instrumental to BPM’s Corporate Tax Practice. Her extensive knowledge and experience in the life sciences and consumer business sectors have made her a valuable asset and advisor for a wide range of clients, from start-up companies to multinational publicly traded companies.
“Dana excels at staff development and leadership,” said Julie West, Corporate Tax Partner and co-leader of the Firm’s Life Sciences Industry Group. “She cares about every member of her team and functions as a coach and mentor to many, many staff. She is the heart and soul of the corporate group and I’m so thankful to have her on my team.”
