The South Florida Business Journal is recognizing Deana Love JD, CPA, Partner and Leader of Private Client Services Practice at Daszkal Bolton, among their 2015 Most Influential Business Women.

Honorees are said to exhibit strong records of leadership, performance and innovation in their industries as well as meaningful community involvement. Additionally, they must have realized significant business accomplishments over the last 12-18 months.

Love is being recognized for her role in the continued development of the firm’s ultra-high net worth private client practice. In her first 12 months with Daszkal Bolton, she successfully introduced several new ultra high net worth clients to the firm. Additionally, she developed herself as a resource to other professionals at Daszkal Bolton, assisting with complex technical issues for clients throughout South Florida. Her contributions have included income tax and estate planning services for some of the firm’s highest profile high net worth clients.

Love is described by her colleagues as a client advocate and mentor. She is passionate about the services Daszkal Bolton provides its clients as well as the idea of fostering a sense of camaraderie and culture. She challenges those who work with her to continue to learn and grow. Love believes that simply doing the work is never enough and looks to be proactive in identifying opportunities to create value in her client relationships and with her colleagues.

Additionally, the honor recognizes Love’s philanthropic endeavors and passions, including those involving animals and children. Furthermore, Love is currently serving as a founding member of Impact 100 of the Palm Beaches. The goal of this organization to bring together 100 women who commit to one meeting per year where they provide one check for $1,000 and vote on one local nonprofit to support by pooling their resources. Their mantra is “one meeting, one vote, one check.” Deana has played an integral role in establishing this local chapter and has worked closely with the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties to secure their role as the liaison for all funds collected.
