PORTLAND, ME (November 5, 2012) – Baker Newman Noyes, one of the nation’s top 200 accounting and consulting firms with locations in Boston, Manchester, Portland, and Portsmouth, announced today that the firm’s co-founder, Ellie Baker, was elected Managing Principal.
Baker will replace Charlie Hahn as Managing Principal. Hahn has accepted a CFO position with a large Maine business.

Baker’s grandfather, Richard Baker, founded Maine’s preeminent accounting firm, Baker & Adam, in Portland in 1938. Approximately 50 years later, in 1995, Ellie Baker built upon that legacy by co-founding Baker Newman Noyes. An accomplished tax professional, Baker has been with the firm ever since, having served as Vice Chairman, Managing Principal, and Principal over the years.
Baker earned her B.A. from the University of Maine, her J.D. from the University of Maine School of Law, and her LL.M. from Boston University. She is a certified public accountant, and serves in leadership roles for a number of community organizations, including Maine Public Broadcasting Network, the University of Maine Board of Trustees, the Portland Symphony Orchestra Board of Trustees, and the UMaine School of Law Foundation, among others.
