New York-based Mazars USA (FY18 net revenue of $205 million) announced that partner Paula Ferreira will succeed Michael Coletti as the New Jersey OMP and Coletti will succeed Kathryn Byrne as the manufacturing and distribution practice leader. Both changes are effective Sept. 1.

He has extensive experience in advising clients on exit strategies, succession planning and restructuring. He is also experienced in relating to contractual arrangements, gross profit improvement analysis, costing and valuation of inventory, as well as debt and equity transactions.

Mazars USA also announced that partner Robert Kastenschmidt was named Mazars global consulting leader. He served previously as national consulting and advisory practice. He also serves as a member of both the global sectors and services team, as well as the global leadership team.

Kastenschmidt has over 20 years of experience providing accounting and management consulting services to clients in a range of industries, both in the U.S. and internationally. He has devised and implemented transformational business strategies while minimizing operational expenses, improving enterprise processes, and building talented teams across a variety of professional disciplines.

“As a firm, we consider consulting a critical growth area,” Kastenschmidt says. “Leading the expansion of this practice and being able to contribute to the success of both Mazars USA and Mazars Group is a real honor. Client complexity, needs and engagement size continue to increase, creating tremendous synergies between these two leadership roles.”
