Makayla Matheson Receives 2013 BKD PRIDE Award

Makayla Matheson_Sep 2010Ted Dickman, BKD, LLP chief executive officer, is proud to announce Makayla Matheson as the employee recipient of the firm’s 2013 PRIDE Award.

The award is given each year to one partner and one employee who exemplify the firm’s PRIDE values:  passion, respect, integrity, discipline and excellence.  BKD partners and employees nominate their peers for the award, and the winners are chosen by the firm’s Governing Board.

Matheson is a supervisor providing audit and accounting services to not-for-profit organizations, including private schools, universities, health and welfare organizations and foundations, as well as clients in the construction and real estate industries.  In her nearly five years with the firm, she has consistently demonstrated an upbeat, can-do attitude and a passion for training staff, which led her to sign on as a counselor for Camp BKD, the firm’s weeklong training and orientation for new hires.

“Makayla is a great example of what it means to live the PRIDE,” Dickman said.  “Her positive attitude and professional skills make her a wonderful representation of The BKD Experience of unmatched client service.  Congratulations to Makayla on earning this well-deserved honor.”

Matheson received her award during a June 19 ceremony at The Midland in Kansas City, Missouri, during BKD’s Leadership Conference.
