DMJ & Co., PLLC, a North Carolina based CPA and accounting firm, is pleased to announce that Andrew (Drew) Steel, CPA, Tax Manager, has graduated from Leadership North Carolina (LNC) joining the alumni Class XXVI. The graduation was held on May 9, 2019, in the Old House Chamber of the North Carolina State Capitol in Raleigh. Drew joined more than fifty classmates and leaders from across the state to celebrate their completion of this prestigious leadership program. Over the course of six two-and-a-half-day sessions, the members of LNC Class XXVI learned about issues critical to the state through discussions with top officials and professionals, field trips, and experiential learning activities. LNC’s sessions focused on five key areas: economic development, education, environment, government, and health and human services.

Each year, LNC recruits committed individuals interested in learning more about their state and connecting with fellow leaders. Through innovative programming, LNC teaches these engaged citizens about the challenges and opportunities facing North Carolina and offers tools to turn their knowledge into action for the benefit of the state. LNC sessions are held around the state, highlighting the social, geographic, and economic diversity of North Carolina. The members of Class XXVI visited Boone, Raleigh, Greensboro, Charlotte, Wilmington, and Asheville. Through LNC’s program, participants gained new insight into North Carolina’s strengths and challenges and developed their own priorities for ways they can improve and empower their communities and the state as a whole.

Drew is a tax manager at DMJ & Co., PLLC’s Durham office and has more than ten years of public accounting experience working directly on individual taxation and taxation of closely held businesses for a variety of industries, including hospitality, contracting, and manufacturing with multi-state operations.
