PKF O’Connor Davies Business Solutions Manager Mistie Carlon Named Top Forty Under 40 Mover & Shaker

Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce’s annual list recognizes business and community achievements in the Hudson Valley

PKF O’Connor Davies, LLP, one of the nation’s largest accounting, tax and advisory firms, today announced that Business Solutions Manager Mistie Carlon has been recognized as a Top Forty Under 40 Mover & Shaker by the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce. The honor reflects Carlon’s accomplished career and impact in New York’s Hudson Valley and underscores the Firm’s deep bench of accomplished and committed leaders and community members.

“I’d like to congratulate Mistie on this accomplishment, which is a meaningful recognition of a career spent serving clients and communities in the Hudson Valley,” said Kevin J. Keane, Executive Chairman at PKF O’Connor Davies. “We’re thrilled to have her as part of the team and look forward to her continued success and impact in the region.”

Carlon joined the Firm along with the rest of the Judelson, Giordano and Siegel team earlier this year and has made an immediate impact. She is a tax specialist focused on preparing corporation, partnership and professional tax returns as well as compiling and reviewing financial statements. She is a guiding force at the Firm’s Poughkeepsie office, with a deep commitment to mentoring junior accountants and enhancing the Firm’s culture and client service.

“I love calling the Hudson Valley home, and this honor from the DCRCC gives me great pride in what I’ve accomplished in my career and for my community,” Carlon said. “I’m grateful to my team of supportive colleagues in Poughkeepsie and send my congratulations to all the other individuals who earned this recognition.”

The Forty Under 40 Mover & Shaker awards are bestowed annually to forty individuals under the age of 40 who have shown a strong commitment to the Hudson Valley. A selection committee comprised of former honorees judge nominations based on professional and community achievements. They score each nomination independently of each other and the Chamber, and the scores are then tallied to determine the Top 40. Neither the Chamber staff nor any sponsors or partners influence the judging in any way. The awards ceremony, which is open to the public, is a celebration of these individuals and their accomplishments. The 2022 Hudson Valley Top Forty Under 40 Mover and Shaker Awards ceremony will be held Thursday, April 14 at Changepoint Theater. More information is available at
