New York-based WeiserMazars (FY15 net revenue of $171 million) has announced leadership changes that support the firm’s long-term strategic plan and continued growth, with a 9% increase in revenues for the fiscal year ended Aug. 31, 2016 marking the sixth consecutive year of revenue growth.
Michael Coletti succeeds James Blake as the OMP in New Jersey. Blake will continue as the firm’s MP and as a member of the Executive Committee (EC). Craig Fine succeeds Andrew Cohen as the OMP in Long Island. Cohen will continue to serve on the EC, along with serving clients and assisting with the firm’s growth strategy for Long Island. Charles Abraham is appointed as the leader of the financial services group in New York, succeeding James Kinney who will continue to provide support for the financial services group growth plans, as well as the Long Island office. These changes were made Sept. 1.
Additionally, effective Jan. 1, Kirk Eldridge will succeed Vincent Burke as the OMP in Pennsylvania. Burke will continue with the firm as a consultant supporting the insurance practice and the Philadelphia market.
“Michael, Craig and Kirk are proven leaders with the industry knowledge and experience necessary to oversee the firm’s New Jersey, Long Island and Pennsylvania practice groups,” says Victor Wahba, chairman and CEO of WeiserMazars. “They all played a critical role in helping the firm execute its growth strategy, and their unmatched commitment to clients and collegial spirit makes them the perfect candidates to oversee the firm’s continued growth in these regions.”
Abraham, who joined WeiserMazars in 2003, will take over the financial services group, where he has specialized in auditing investment companies, investment advisors and broker-dealers. “The financial services group is one of WeiserMazars’ most dynamic and exciting practices,” says Wahba. “Charles’s outstanding track record of helping clients address complex regulatory challenges made his appointment an easy decision.”
