HHM CPAs Hires 3

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

HHM CPAs, a full-service certified public accounting and consulting firm with locations in Chattanooga and Memphis, has hired three professionals to support firm growth. The additions include a controller, an audit manager, and staff accountant. 

HHM welcomes Jessi M. Blackwell as the firm controller. Ms. Blackwell will oversee controllership functions and perform full-cycle accounting and bookkeeping functions for HHM and its affiliate companies. Prior to joining HHM, Ms. Blackwell worked in the banking industry for several years before making the switch to accounting. Most recently, Ms. Blackwell was the accounting manager at a Cleveland location of the largest privately held long-term elderly care company in the United States.

Chase Lloyd joins the firm as a manager in the accounting and assurance department. He will be responsible for the full engagement cycle including planning, risk assessments, and financial statement preparation, review, and presentation. Mr. Lloyd began his public accounting career at HHM in 2008, prior to relocating to Denver, Co. for six years where he worked for a large regional firm on a variety of audit engagements.

Also joining the firm is Ryan McGowan. He will provide tax and audit support to clients within the dealership industry. Mr. McGowan, who holds a Master of Accountancy from UTC, brings with him many years of experience in private accounting.

"It is always great to add talented professionals to our growing team,” said Donnie Hutcherson, managing partner of HHM CPAs. “We are also very happy to have Chase Lloyd back after his time spent in Colorado. I have no doubt these three professionals will transition in to the work flow seamlessly.”
