Deanna Severeyns, CPA, CA

Chief Financial Officer

“Who moved my Cheese?” and “Our Ice Berg is Melting” are two of my favorite books. They teach lessons about human nature and how we can react to our changing environments.

Maximizing efficiencies.

As the chief financial officer, Deanna works to make things run smoothly behind the scenes. Whether it’s removing barriers to processes, working to ensure accounting software works to its fullest potential or responding to a regulatory change, Deanna helps foster working relationships that lead to creative solutions at Stewart McKelvey.
