New York-based CohnReznick LLP (FY14 net revenue of $508.2 million) announced that its partnership has elected Frank Longobardi to serve as the firm’s next CEO. Longobardi will take office on Oct. 1, when current co-CEOs, Ken Baggett and Tom Marino, step down pursuant to the terms of the partnership agreement. Both Baggett and Marino will remain members of CohnReznick’s executive board.

Currently a member of the executive board and regional MP – New England, Longobardi will relocate to New York in the fall of 2015 where he will operate out of the firm’s national headquarters in Manhattan. He previously served as a member of the firm’s go-to market committee, which oversaw the strategic planning for industry and service specialization when CohnReznick was formed in 2012 as a result of the J.H. Cohn and Reznick Group combination. Prior to that, Longobardi was responsible for all of J.H. Cohn’s industry groups, bringing standardization to the marketing, leadership development and continuing education efforts of each practice. He joined the firm in 2007 when his own firm, Haggett Longobardi, combined with J.H. Cohn, helping the latter organization to dramatically expand its presence in the Northeast.

“I am deeply honored to be chosen to lead CohnReznick and look forward to working with our people to achieve new goals in serving our clients and communities, shaping discussions around the issues that impact today’s businesses, and developing the future leaders of this firm,” says Longobardi. “Under Ken and Tom’s visionary leadership over the past three years, CohnReznick has grown substantially and is better positioned for success than ever before.”

“Frank is a passionate, firm-first type of leader,” says Baggett. “In addition to leading our New England region for the past three years and serving on several national committees, Frank has always looked for ways to innovate and improve the quality of our client service across all areas of the firm. I look forward to continuing to work alongside him and supporting his vision for the future of CohnReznick.”
