Piccinnini Joins Citrin Cooperman as Partner
Citrin Cooperman & Company, LLP announced that John J. Piccinnini, CPA, has joined the firm as a partner in its New York City headquarters.
Piccinnini brings 28 years of accounting experience to Citrin Cooperman. Before joining the firm, John spent six years as CFO for The Coastal Group, a Manhattan-based advertising agency. He began his career at a mid-sized regional accounting firm, and later co-founded Saltzer Lassar Piccinnini & Co., LLC, where he was a senior partner.
“John brings a tremendous amount of experience to the firm, both as a CFO and as an audit partner,” said Citrin Cooperman managing partner Joel Cooperman. “His experience in the staffing and manufacturing industries will allow us to provide an even deeper level of service to our clients in these areas.”
Piccinnini is licensed as a certified public accountant in New York, and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants. Throughout his career, he has served on various AICPA technical committees, including as a reviewer and consultant in the association’s Peer Review and CPA WebTrust Assurance programs.
“Joining Citrin Cooperman is a homecoming of sorts for me, back to the world of public accounting, after six years in private industry,” said Piccinnini. “I look forward to the challenges of working with a varied set of clients and providing solutions that will help grow their businesses.”
Piccinnini earned bachelor’s degree in accounting from Long Island Univers
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
