"We are extremely proud of Anita and her accomplishments with ABC," says Mark Cissell, President & CEO of KatzAbosch.  "This recognition as Woman of the Year is more confirmation of what we already know about her, that she's a wonderful role model to women, not only within our own firm, but to the construction and accounting industries in general."
