DALLAS - Partner, Neely Duncan, at Lane Gorman Trubitt, PLLC was recognized by National Association of Professional Women as "VIP Woman of the Year -2014."

Duncan received the NAPW award for her leadership and commitment in her profession. She was completely unaware of her submission for this award and was shocked and honored to have been chosen. Duncan was anonymously nominated and voted on by a committee who found her to be the most deserving of this prestigious acknowledgement.  

"I won primarily for my personal and professional work with the non-profit community, the NPO positions I have held, the professional certifications, as well as the various committee and boards I serve on for the CPA profession," said Duncan. "By receiving this award I also will have unlimited access for free to conferences and national multimedia which is usually a cost of $2000. I personally paid for the membership in this association and it seems to be paying off and I want our firm to reap the benefits!"

With this award LGT's website has been added as a link to her profile for direct access to our services referred to in the "VIP Showcase-nationally".  The Dallas chapter of this national association has 550 members that are active in various specialty, community and national organizations, including Duncan.

 "Neely has proven to be a true asset to the audit department at LGT as well as the Dallas and Fort Worth not-for-profit communities," said Scott Cote, LGT's Director of Practice Growth. "It's very demanding to be a part of such an exemplary team and we demand a lot from our people.  Through the years, Neely has more than risen to the challenge.  She has become a true leader in one of the most highly regarded accounting firms in the Metroplex."

In 2004, Neely joined LGT after serving four years in the United States Navy.  She is well-known within the not-for-profit community and serves on numerous boards and committees.  She is also involved in the healthcare industry and is a Certified Fraud Examiner.  In addition to her strong community involvement, she balances work with two children and her husband, Lee Duncan.
