Delene E. Taylor, CPA, CGMA
The two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why. —MARK TWAIN
Delene joined Deming, Malone, Livesay & Ostroff (DMLO) in 2013 as Marketing Director. She serves on the Marketing Committee and as facilitator of the iGen Committee. She loves working with entrepreneurs, particularly in providing affordable solutions bundling the many benefits of cloud-based accounting applications with the trusted services of a CPA-level business advisor.
Delene began her career in public accounting in Dallas, TX, then spent 7 years as a Controller/CFO in the professional services industry. Upon her return to the Louisville area, she joined a local CPA firm, serving clients and then the firm in the roles of Firm Administrator, HR Director and Marketing/Business Development Director, for over 15 years. When that firm was merged into an aspiring national firm, she chose to pursue her passion with ‘Louisville original’ DMLO CPAs, where she relishes the opportunity to be hopelessly devoted to promoting CPAs!
