PKF O’Connor Davies Add Two Members to Executive Committee

Christopher Petermann

New York-based PKF O’Connor Davies (FY17 net revenue of $160 million) has added two new members to its executive committee – Christopher Petermann and Garrett Higgins.

The professionals were approved following recommendations by the firm’s recently established governance committee.

“These nominations show the importance of attracting and growing talent at the firm,” says MP Kevin J. Keane. “Chris and Garrett have demonstrated exemplary leadership qualities throughout their careers and specifically during their time as partners at PKF O’Connor Davies.”

Petermann serves as co-PIC for the private foundation practice and specializes in accounting for exempt organizations and private foundations, as well as closely held businesses and financial services entities. Higgins serves as PIC for the exempt organization tax and advisory services group and specializes in providing tax compliance and advisory services to tax-exempt organizations.

To avoid having multiple partners finish their duties in the same year, the governance committee recommended Petermann serve a six-year term and Higgins serve a four-year term. The executive committee accepted these recommendations upon appointment on Jan. 1.
