The Certified Public Accounting firm of Leone, McDonnell & Roberts, PA is pleased to welcome Molly Burns, MSA, Robert Franger, MSA and Ryan Olver, MSA as Staff Accountants to the Dover, New Hampshire office. All three new hires have interned with the firm multiple times honing in on their skills, getting to know clients and gaining valuable work experience.
Growing up in Bedford, New Hampshire, Molly recently graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a Master’s in Accounting.
“I'd like to think I bring a fresh perspective to the office, and I am looking forward to continued growth in both tax and audit work,” said Molly. “My favorite things about working at LMR are the people and the positive work environment. I feel welcomed and enjoy the team approach to every project…working alongside interns, accountants and partners.”
She currently resides in Dover, New Hampshire, and outside of the office, Molly’s happy place is on horseback riding a beautiful trail.
Originally from Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, Robert Franger also graduated in 2019 with his Master’s in Accounting from the University of New Hampshire. He earned a first place award for his Master’s research case presentation (with Ryan Olver-see below) and was a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Honor Society, Alpha Sigma. Rob was a member of the men’s track and field team during college where he ran the 400m and 500m events. Rob has also participated in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
Assisting clients in both audit and tax, Rob enjoys the problem-solving aspect of his role. “I particularly like to help clients achieve their individual goals,” said Rob.
Rob is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) as well as the Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants (MSCPA). He currently resides in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and hopes to one day fulfill a bucket list dream of attending an NBA game in all 30 NBA arenas across the United States.
Originally from Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, Ryan Olver earned a Master’s in Accounting, graduating from the University of New Hampshire in May 2019. Partnered with Rob Franger (noted above), Ryan was awarded the first place honor for their Master’s research case presentation.
Assisting clients in the areas of tax and audit, Ryan enjoys helping clients find the most advantageous solution to their financial accounting needs.
“In addition to helping clients, I love the positive culture at the firm,” said Ryan. “From day one, I felt like I belonged and aligned with their family based values.”
A current resident of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Ryan enjoys playing basketball and spending time with friends and family...especially his nieces and nephew. A cheesehead at heart, Ryan has a treasured collection of Green Bay Packer tickets that he has been saving from games he has attended since 2003.
Managing Partner Evan Stowell noted “We are proud to welcome Molly, Ryan and Rob to Leone, McDonnell & Roberts and know they will be an integral part of our team. Having each completed multiple internships with our firm, we are confident in their abilities to contribute immediately and are excited to watch and support them as they begin their career with the firm.”
