BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – Lohan Kotze, CPA, of Jonesborough, was recently presented with the Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants’ (TSCPA) 2023 TSCPApex Emerging Leader Award.

The TSCPApex Awards Program recognizes the many ways that individuals contribute significant time, energy and intellect to developing the accounting profession and fostering its success. The Emerging Leader Award is presented to an individual who has made noteworthy professional accomplishments and stood out in the areas of professional knowledge, skill, integrity and leadership.

Since moving to the Rodefer Moss & Co, PLLC office in Kingsport, Tennessee, in the fall of 2020, Kotze has been promoted from senior audit manager to reach partner at age 34. Kotze has been dedicated to making progress in improving the pipeline of CPAs, whether it be through speaking to local high school students about the accounting profession, giving lectures to finance and accounting clubs or recruiting at the local universities for his firm. He is also an active member of the Appalachian Chapter of TSCPA.

“He is hands down one of the most influential leaders I have had the pleasure to know,” said former coworker and nominator Reagan Elkins, CPA. “I can honestly say Lohan is the reason that the staff in his office are excited to come to work each day. He has a knack for bringing out the best in people and making sure everyone feels valued.”
