Current Title: Managing Partner and CEO

Current Company: Whittlesey

Q: What is your biggest professional accomplishment since receiving this award?

A: Since receiving this award, my most significant professional accomplishment is serving as the firm’s Managing Partner and CEO since 2008. As Managing Partner, I’ve had the privilege to work alongside my team to develop a strategy to achieve operational excellence, deliver outstanding client service, attract and develop top talent, and achieve significant growth. Through organic growth and strategic mergers, we’ve expanded our footprint into southern Connecticut and western Massachusetts and diversified our service capabilities and industry and specialty practices to meet our clients’ evolving needs.

Today, Whittlesey is the largest Connecticut-based CPA and technology firm and one of the largest in New England. Although my primary responsibility is guiding the firm, after spending 37 years in client service, I still enjoy providing practical advice to help our clients reach their business goals and coaching and mentoring team members. I take great pride in having coached and mentored all of Whittlesey’s 40 Under Forty awardees and look forward to doing the same for the firm’s rising stars.
