At the end of 2021, Dembo Jones shareholder Don Marshall will be transitioning into a part-time role as Director. Don plans to work at Dembo Jones for many more years and will withdraw from ownership, in his words, to “make room for rising stars!”
Don has been with Dembo Jones since 1989 after stints at national CPA firm Main Hurdman and as a controller for a government contractor.
He headed Dembo Jones’ audit and accounting department for 32 years and led the firm through peer reviews for over 30 — always with clean opinions!
Don initiated the firm’s government contracting and federal governmental audit and accounting practices and spearheaded the expansion of the not-for-profit association and outsourcing (now coined “Client Accounting Services”) practices.
“In addition to serving as an incredible leader and resource for our audit and accounting team, Don has been a business development savant — growing the client relationships and our regional reputation that have helped secure the present and future of our firm,” said Co-CEO Jim Green.
“Thankfully, Don is not retiring at this time, and our current staff and clients will continue to benefit from his mentorship and insight. His contributions to the success of Dembo Jones are immeasurable!”
Don received his B.S. in Accounting from the University of Maryland and his M.B.A. from George Washington University. He serves as Treasurer of the Friends of the Bethesda Library and has served several not-for-profit organizations over the years.
