MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: Lindsey Cowperthwait

A lifelong South Jersey resident, Lindsey Cowperthwait has a soft spot for the region personally, professionally and philanthropically.

As Client Relationship Manager at Abacus Payroll, Inc., a division of The Alloy Silverstein Group, Lindsey assists small businesses located throughout South Jersey where she helps them to optimize their payroll, workforce management and HR operations to be as effortless as possible.

In addition to working directly with business owners and employers, Lindsey also travels throughout South Jersey for networking events and meetings to build relationships, to further connect business owners with payroll solutions.

Lindsey is new to Impact100 South Jersey in 2023. After learning about the organization from Leadership Council member Angela Venti, a co-worker at the Alloy Silverstein Group, Lindsey applied for membership in December 2022 and has become an active member.

She didn’t hesitate to join the Events committee where plans are underway for the June Annual Meeting. Lindsey enjoys planning events and social gatherings, especially bringing new and fresh ideas to the planning process.

Most important to Lindsey is that not only is Impact100 a South Jersey-centric collective giving group, but the organization stays focused on South Jersey nonprofits that impact and provide resources to its South Jersey neighbors and communities.

Her membership is sponsored by Ren Cicalese, Alloy Silverstein Group’s managing shareholder, who sponsors seven women from the firm with Impact100 South Jersey memberships.

While most companies struggled with layoffs in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lindsey was hired to the Alloy Silverstein Group team in April 2021 (mid tax season!) for a brand-new position.

As a mother of two young children, Lindsey appreciated that firm leadership’s greatest concern was to minimize risk and make sure employees and families were protected, allowing team members to work safely from home.

Lindsey jumped right in with the other Abacus Payroll team members who worked tirelessly to ensure small businesses’ payroll was processed without interruption and all concerns, paperwork and applications for pandemic relief opportunities (ERC, PPP, disaster loans, local grants, etc.) were addressed and communicated in a timely and accurate manner.

In a period of uncertainty, Lindsey and the payroll team aimed to be an area of stability for South Jersey employers.

With a smile on her face, Lindsey shares why she’s so proud to represent the Abacus Payroll team: Having had experience in banking and payroll prior to joining Abacus, Lindsey admits that, because of Abacus Payroll’s impressive 99.3% client retention rate, it’s wonderful to work with small businesses who become longtime clients and are pleased with the services provided by their payroll specialist and the Abacus team. She truly enjoys helping those business owners see success.

Having grown up in Lumberton, Lindsey now calls Medford home, where she resides with her husband, Matt, two children, Nolan and Layla, and their dog, Ellie.

As Chair of her neighborhood’s Children’s Committee, Lindsey and her family spend a lot of time in their community, with friends and family, at youth sports events, and traveling to the beach. Lindsey enjoys yoga and cheering on the Philadelphia sports teams.

Lindsey looks forward to continuing membership with Impact100 and that, one day, for her daughter to also be moved by and involved with the inspiring women of Impact100 who are stepping up to make a difference in the South Jersey community.
