2023 Power 50: 30. Melissa Ferrucci

Melissa Ferrucci

The accounting industry, long known as male-dominated, has increased efforts to diversify its leadership ranks in recent years. 

One local example is Melissa Ferrucci, the office managing partner of CPA firm CohnReznick’s Hartford and Stamford locations. She was elevated to the position about a year ago, and became a firm partner in 2020.

Besides managing CohnReznick’s Connecticut offices, Ferrucci serves clients in commercial real estate and affordable housing, providing auditing services and guidance on industry issues to a range of stakeholders. 

She has also worked closely with various governments and quasi-governmental agencies.

She’s been leading CohnReznick’s Connecticut offices as the firm continues to operate in a remote and hybrid model.

“I think the flexibility and the work-life balance that people have experienced through COVID, and currently, is much better than it historically was,” Ferrucci told HBJ in September.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in accounting from Central Connecticut State University and her master’s in accounting and taxation from the University of Hartford.

She’s also active in the community having previously served as president of CREW-CT, an association for senior-level executive women in the commercial real estate field.
