Skoda Minotti is pleased to announce that its chairman, Gregory J. Skoda, CPA, has been named one of Smart Business Magazine's Smart 50 Award Honorees. The Smart 50 Award recognizes Northeast Ohio's top business executives who are leading the region's smartest companies for their ability to effectively build and lead successful organizations. This is the second consecutive year that Skoda has been recognized with the Smart 50 award. He is the only executive from a locally owned CPA and business advisory firm.

Skoda co-founded and built the 250 employee professional services firm from a small tax and accounting business in 2001 to a full-service business and financial advisory firm.  Today, the company not only provides CPA services, but also wealth and financial services, professional staffing, risk advisory, strategic marketing, technology solutions and valuation and lititation advisory services.

"We're honored to be recognized again by Smart Business as a smart company," said Skoda. "We continue to challenge ourselves to find new ways to help our clients build strategies, grow and achieve financial success. We've built a sustainable culture that enables us to grow as our clients grow; this award would not be possible without them."

Winners were recognized at an awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 20, at Executive Caterers in Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights.
