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.”

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.”
