PBMares, LLP, a Top 100 accounting and consulting firm based in Newport News, VA, has received the 2022 Tax Consultant of the Year Award from The BoardRoom magazine. PBMares Tax Partner Kevin Reilly, a nationally recognized club tax consultant, has also been awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Business partner award recipients are selected for their impact, achievements, and contributions to the club industry by The BoardRoom magazine, the foremost authority for private clubs.

In commenting on PBMares’ industry involvement, Kevin said, “Rather than being bystanders, we have been instrumental in shaping the industry landscape by helping clubs identify and mitigate or capitalize on the country’s changing demographics and economy.”

Kevin’s distinguished honor as the Lifetime Achievement Award recipient reflects a career dedicated to providing clarity and guidance to private clubs. He has appeared on C-SPAN, CNBC, and PBS, contributed regularly to conferences and trade publications, and remained active in several club and hospitality organizations. Kevin has also contributed to several prominent industry tax and legal guides, many of which are in their third or fourth editions.

“As a firm, we are honored to once again receive this industry-leading award,” said Harvey L. Johnson, Partner and CEO of PBMares. “We are immensely proud of Kevin for earning the Lifetime Achievement Award. It’s a well-deserved reflection of his commitment and many contributions to private clubs throughout his career.”
