LBMC Employment Partners, a member of the LBMC Family of Companies, is pleased to announce that Rebekah Harney has been named Partner/Business Development Director effective January 1, 2019.

“On behalf of the entire LBMC family, I am honored to have Rebekah step in as our newest EP Partner. She has been an instrumental member of our team since she joined us eight years ago, consistently providing outstanding service to clients and colleagues alike,” says Sharon Powlus, President and CEO of LBMC Employment Partners.

In her role, Rebekah will work with the leadership on long-term planning for the growth of the business as well as continue to oversee business development for LBMC Employment Partners’ three offices. She will also continue working with potential clients to determine what services best meet their needs, as well as onboarding new clients to ensure they’re transitioning smoothly.

“It has been an honor to work for such an amazing company as LBMC Employment Partners over the last eight years. I have appreciated the support from everyone along my career journey as Business Development Professional to becoming Business Development Manager to now Partner/Business Development Director,” says Harney.

Rebekah joined LBMC Employment Partners in 2011 and was named Business Development Manager in 2014. Prior to joining LBMC Employment Partners, Rebekah received her funeral directors and embalmers license from John A. Gupton College, so that she could work in her family business. She continued her education at Middle Tennessee State University, earning her bachelor’s degree and MBA. Upon graduation, Rebekah began working at LBMC Employment Partners.

“Rebekah’s new role allows us to continue our planning and growth for LBMC EP’s next phase, and I am excited about what the future holds,” adds Powlus.

Rebekah and her husband, Justin, live in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, with their 3-year-old son. In her free time, Rebekah enjoys traveling and showing Tennessee Walking Horses, a pastime she’s been involved with since childhood—and, incidentally how she met Justin, who shares the same enthusiasm.

“LBMC Employment Partners has been my second family for the last 8 years. They have not only professionally been there as I have grown in my career, but they’ve also been there personally. When I started at the company, I had no family in Middle Tennessee, and they claimed me from day one. It is truly an honor to be named Partner at such an amazing company. I hope to help others grow in the same way as I have experienced,” affirms Harney.
