New York-based Citrin Cooperman (FY14 net revenue of $173 million) announces that partner John Genz has received the Distinguished Service Medallion from the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJCPA).

The medallion honors those who “exceed expectations and set the standard of excellence for others to follow.” Genz served as president of the NJCPA Monmouth Ocean Chapter for the 2003-2004 fiscal year, served on the state board of trustees from 2007-2009 and was state secretary in 2010.

Frank Boutilette, president of the NJCPA and a partner at WithumSmith+Brown, presented the medallion to Genz at the NJCPA Monmouth/Ocean Chapter Annual Tax Seminar on Jan. 9.

“John has proven his dedication to the accounting profession through his various leadership roles in the NJCPA, such as Monmouth/Ocean Chapter president, NJCPA board of trustees secretary and chair of numerous tax committees,” says Boutilette.  “As each of his terms ended, John eagerly looked for new ways to volunteer and advance the profession. Recently, he gave an excellent summary of the new tax regulations at a NJCPA all-day tax seminar.”

“I was pleasantly surprised and deeply honored by this recognition,” says Genz. “The society has given me so much, it would be difficult to repay, and I’m proud to continue working with Frank and the NJCPA for the good of the industry and its members.”
