Linda Saddlemire is the Managing Partner at Vicenti, Lloyd & Stutzman. As such, her duties include overseeing all aspects of management of the firm, including client service, finances, human resources, facilities and marketing. She joined the firm in 1982 and was named Partner in 1989.
One of Linda’s passions in life is traveling to new places to learn about other cultures as well as witness the beauty and uniqueness of the world. In addition to covering many of the states in the U.S., she has also visited parts of Australia, Scotland, England, Canada, Mexico, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and South Africa.
Her visit to South Africa has been one of the most influential of such trips where she latched on to an African philosophy called “Ubuntu”. “Ubuntu” is a theory embracing our interconnections with one another, and how our humanity is dependent on recognizing the humanity of others. This theory coincides very much with the core values of Vicenti, in respecting the individual, high ethical values and mutual trust.
Linda attempts to uphold these values as she helps our clients and their attorneys deal with resolving difficult issues such as fraudulent acts occurring within their organization. Although she works with numerous types of organizations, her specialty lies within the education community where she has spent much of her time over the past 30 years. In addition to her CPA, Linda is a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) and is Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF). Linda also received her Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership from the University of La Verne in May of 2015. View her dissertation here.
For fun, Linda plays the djembe in a local West African drumming ensemble, is an avid tennis and hockey fan and loves spending time with her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Izzy. She also loves being an Aunt to her seven nieces and nephews, whom she adores.
