VonLehman Names Deirdre Bird Director of Human Resources Consulting


VonLehman CPA & Advisory Firm announced the promotion of Deirdre Bird to Director of Human Resources Consulting. As Director, she leads a team of four consultants specialized in providing HR management and consulting solutions for clients, including talent acquisition and retention strategies, HR strategic planning and succession services, compensation design, and transformation and organizational design consulting.

“VonLehman is committed to supporting our regional businesses, and human resources consulting services present a tremendous opportunity for us to contribute to the growth of the Tri-State economy,” said Brian Malthouse, President of VonLehman. “In three years at VonLehman, Deirdre has been a catalyst for growth through her visionary leadership, strategic market analysis, and exceptional client care. Her dedication to the firm and commitment to the industry makes her the obvious choice to lead our Human Resources Consulting Group.”

Bird has accumulated over 20 years of experience providing human resources and management consultation for local companies including: Western & Southern Financial Group, The Cincinnati Enquirer, and Gannett Co., Inc.

“VonLehman’s HR Consulting practice has thrived in recent years. I’m excited to lead such an amazing team that will continue to provide great client service,” said Bird. “I’m a firm believer that highly engaged employees make the customer experience. The demand for organization, talent, and transformation services across all industries – primarily, construction and real estate, manufacturing and distribution, and nonprofits – is at an all-time high. More companies are realizing that growth is achieved through investments in their people, and we’re happy to be a part of influencing their success.”

VonLehman is committed to providing this service not commonly offered by traditional accounting firms. Over the years, client demand has incited the firm to continually invest in human resources consulting.  This was demonstrated through the hiring of Amy Linkous in 2017. Prior to joining the firm, Linkous served as the Director of Human Resources for HAHN Automation and she brings over 15 years of human resource experience to the firm.  Since 2003, the firm’s Human Resources Consulting Group has served regional businesses of all sizes, providing innovative organizational strategies and solution implementation at all levels. VonLehman delivers integrated or targeted recruiting, coaching, change management and HR outsourcing capabilities to match the needs of client organizations.
