As a child growing up in a small town in northwest Missouri, Andrea Bohr excelled at math and really enjoyed problem solving. Those skills have served her well in her 21-year accounting career.

Last October, Ms. Bohr brought her talents to Palm Beach County when she accepted a position as chief financial officer at Wantman Group Inc., a West Palm Beach-based engineering consulting firm founded in 1972.

“As WGI continues to grow, it’s important that our financial reporting and analytics are accurately delivered in a timely manner,” Ms. Bohr, 53, said. “We have a dynamic leadership team led by David Wantman and it is both exciting and fulfilling to be the catalyst in achieving our financial objectives from strategy to execution. Our focus is to always look forward because you can’t successfully drive performance by looking through the rearview mirror.”

Before taking the position at Wantman Group, Ms. Bohr was the chief accounting officer for a privately held engineering firm in Orlando. She led that company through an IRS examination with a “no change” audit resulting in significant savings for the firm related to Research & Development Tax Credits.
