Kristin Bivona is the 2021-22 chair of the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

“I am honored to serve the FICPA and its members during a time of transition and opportunity. Advocacy is at the heart of the Institute. We work day and night to advance our industry’s interests, advocate on our member’s behalf and protect CPA licenses,” said Bivona, managing partner of GellerRagans.

A Fort Lauderdale native and a lifelong Floridian, she first joined the FICPA in 2005, having earned both her bachelor’s degree in accounting and MBA from her beloved alma mater, the University of Central Florida. She has since served on the Central Florida Chapter, various state committees, the Florida CPA/PAC, the AICPA Governing Council, the FICPA Council and the Board of Directors.

“I can think of no better leader than Kristin during this time of tremendous opportunity and transformation for the FICPA,” said outgoing Chair W.G. Spoor, partner at the St. Petersburg-based accounting firm Spoor Bunch Franz. “I have had the pleasure to work alongside Kristin for over five years, and I am proud to say that both the future of the FICPA and our profession are bright with leaders such as her at the helm.”
