PKF O’Connor Davies Establishes Governance Committee

Tom Blaney

New York-based PKF O’Connor Davies (FY17 net revenue of $160 million) has established a formal governance committee, which will recommend members for the executive committee and advise committee members.

The committee will be led by partner Thomas Blaney, who will serve as chair. Additional committee members are partners Clare Cella, Robert Cordero, Ed O’Connor and Marc Rinaldi.

“This governance committee is a powerful opportunity to put some additional structure around how we select our leadership team and guide the direction of the firm,” says MP Kevin J. Keane. “For nearly two decades, Tom has been a trusted and vital part of the PKF O’Connor Davies executive leadership, which makes him the perfect individual to lead this new governance initiative.”

The governance committee will support the executive committee in selecting new members and providing input and counsel related to governance policies and best practices. This governance committee is among several steps the firm has taken to formalize its governance and leadership practices. The committee is designed to help the firm adapt as future initiatives and priorities emerge.
