A Message from our CEO
Dear clients and friends of CohnReznick:
As I proudly begin my tenure as CohnReznick’s next CEO, I want to personally thank you for the trust and support you give us and reaffirm our commitment to you.
As previously announced, the partners of the Firm have elected me to be their next CEO as Tom Marino and Ken Baggett step down pursuant to the terms of our partnership agreement. I am happy to report that Ken will now be our first Chairman of the Board, a role in which he will focus on a number of strategic initiatives for the Firm, including getting back to his roots, being very active with our Affordable Housing practice. Tom will continue as a member of the Executive Board through May 2016. Both Tom and Ken have been remarkable leaders of this Firm and the legacy organizations from which we were formed: J.H. Cohn and Reznick Group. I am honored to have worked with them and to have their support today.
As a new leader, I could not ask for anything more than the talented, passionate team here at CohnReznick; our outstanding client base of diverse sizes and goals; and the incredible, supportive network we have in the marketplace. All of this makes my job easier in many ways. But leadership is about guiding the team to greater heights – to do and be even better.
To that end, I know we can and will do more to strengthen your trust and support. You can expect to see the following from us:
- Continued investment in and commitment to providing deep industry insight and results-driven, forward thinking guidance to help you achieve your business goals now and in the future.
- A renewed focus on being an employer of choice that attracts top talent to this organization and nurtures future leaders inside the Firm so you can count on an exceptional client service team.
- The relentless pursuit to provide industry-leading, world-class client service. This is more than just words, it will be a part of all that we do and how we recruit and reward our team members. We will challenge ourselves to be more nimble and efficient, more innovative, and more impactful in how we serve you.
- A visible and genuine presence in our communities, giving back in both our time and resources. We believe that giving back is our responsibility and our privilege; it has been a pillar of this Firm from inception. It is an ideal that unites our offices and inspires our people and we will only increase our emphasis on this through CohnReznick CARES.
In closing, I want you to know that I will be a visible and accessible CEO. I would love to hear from you – to understand how we can better serve your business and to share more about the exciting goals our partners and employees are working toward. We all look forward to exceeding your expectations.
