John Swirsding has joined New York-based Marcum LLP (FY14 net revenue of $385.4 million) as an assurance services partner in the firm’s Philadelphia office.

Swirsding has 20 years of experience serving public and private companies ranging from small, closely held entities to large multinational SEC Registrants. He specializes in assurance services, with a focus on SEC and SOX compliance.

Swirsding works with SEC Registrants to coordinate, plan, administer and perform PCAOB-compliant financial statement audits. He has also worked with numerous clients on initial public offerings, secondary offerings and Section 144A debt offerings to ensure compliance with accounting and reporting requirements, including complex US GAAP and FASB standards. He also has experience coordinating global multi-location engagements.

Prior to joining Marcum, Swirsding spent 14 years in the audit practice of a Big 4 firm, and four years at a leading regional CPA firm. At this firm, Swirsding spearheaded the launch of a firm-wide national XBRL practice line, for which he served as partner and practice leader.

“John Swirsding’s extensive experience brings additional depth to our Philadelphia Assurance Services practice,” says Jeffrey Zudeck, Philadelphia PIC. “He will be a valuable new asset both for our clients and our Philadelphia team.”
