Gunther Joins CohnReznick’s National Renewable Energy Industry Practice

Ted Gunther has joined New York-based CohnReznick LLP (FY14 net revenue of $508.2 million) as a partner in the firm’s national renewable energy industry practice.

Based in the New York office, Gunther brings 11 years of experience in the power and utilities practice of a Big 4 firm where he led the integrated audit of multiple Fortune 500 power and utility companies, including that firm’s largest power and utility client relationship. He has also led carve-out financial statement audits of multiple renewable energy project financing transactions, in which he assisted companies with the complexities of SEC reporting and technical accounting positions. During his career, Gunther has advised and led the purchase accounting efforts on several multi-billion dollar acquisitions, which were among the largest M&A power and utility transactions in the industry and included significant renewable energy deals.

Gunther also brings in-depth technical and SEC financial reporting experience. He has spent two years in a Big 4 national office, where he advised power and utility clients of the accounting models and financial reporting considerations associated with complex financial instrument transactions. Due to his extensive experience with significant M&A transactions and SEC reporting, he will add to the firm’s capabilities in IPO readiness and acquisitions due diligence, and help to expand the accounting assistance and valuation services offered to renewable energy industry clients.

“Ted will be instrumental in growing our practice in the New York region,” says Tim Kemper, a CohnReznick partner and renewable energy industry practice co-director. “I’ve been impressed by both his deep industry knowledge and his enthusiasm for helping the industry’s largest clients reach their goals.”
