Whitman Business Advisors, an accounting industry advisory firm, has announced that Rick Fisher has joined the team as a consultant for human resources and M&A services.

Fisher is the former PIC of the human resources department of New York-based EisnerAmper (FY18 net revenue of $360.7 million) with more than 40 years of diversified experience in accounting, finance and human resources.

During that period, Fisher’s responsibilities include recruiting, mentoring, compensation strategies, development of personnel policies, staff scheduling and budgeting, including long-range strategic planning. Fisher was the plan administrator of the firm’s 401(k) retirement plan, profit-sharing plan and insurance programs.

Adding Rick to the WBA team adds considerable depth and breadth to our practice management consulting offering.”

Whitman Business Advisors works with more than a third of the top 100 accounting firms on talent acquisition, mergers and acquisitions, practice management consulting, growth strategies, MP coaching and more.

Fisher says, “I’ve been fortunate to work with some talented and dynamic leaders, who understood that the human resource function and the firms’ culture plays a vital part in a firm’s growth and sustainability.”
