RALEIGH, N.C. — Poyner Spruill LLP is pleased to announce the election of partner Kelsey Mayo to the firm’s seven-member Management Committee, which acts as the firm’s governing body and manager of day-to-day operations.
Mayo has been a partner at Poyner Spruill since 2016.
“Kelsey will be a welcome new voice on the committee, and she will undoubtedly use this opportunity to grow as a leader at our firm. She has been a valued colleague for years, and I welcome her to the management of the firm.” Poyner Spruill Managing Partner Dan Cahill said.
In 2017, the firm expanded the committee to seven members, with an emphasis on creating a development path for younger attorneys to become leaders within the firm, by ensuring that two seats on the Management Committee are held by equity partners under age 50. The committee helps generate ideas on strategic direction, governance and oversight of operations.
Mayo’s practice is based in Poyner Spruill’s Charlotte office and focuses on employee benefits and executive compensation. She has extensive experience working with governmental, nonprofit, and for-profit employers on all aspects of qualified and non-qualified plans, welfare benefit plans, fringe benefit plans, and executive compensation plans.
Recently, the Mecklenburg Times named Mayo to its annual list of the 50 Most Influential Women in Mecklenburg County.
