Accounting and tax firm CohnReznick picks next CEO

By ,

CohnReznick LLP, a New York accounting, tax and advisory firm with a large New Jersey presence, has chosen its next chief executive officer, it announced Thursday.

Frank P. Longobardi, a longtime executive with the firm, will take over as CEO effective Oct. 1, when current co-CEOs Ken Baggett and Tom Marino step down under the terms of the partnership agreement.

“I am deeply honored to be chosen to lead CohnReznick and look forward to working with our people to achieve new goals in serving our clients and communities, shaping discussions around the issues that impact today’s businesses and developing the future leaders of this firm,” he said in a prepared statement.

The firm, which has offices in Eatontown, Edison, Princeton and Roseland, said Longobardi, a member of the executive board and regional managing partner – New England, will relocate to New York and work out of the national headquarters in Manhattan. He has been with the firm since 2007, joining in the merger of his firm Haggett Longobardi with J.H. Cohn.

“Frank has been a trusted and influential leader throughout his time at CohnReznick, and I am confident he has the credentials, experience and insight to move this firm forward and achieve remarkable results for our clients,” Marino said in a statement.

Baggett and Marino will remain members of the CohnReznick executive board, the firm added.

“Under Ken and Tom’s visionary leadership over the past few years, CohnReznick has grown substantially and is better positioned for success than ever before,” Longobardi said.
