Now, twenty years later, C&A has a staff of over 30 full and part time employees, including four partners, 12 CPAs, and several members with advanced degrees, including MBAs and masters in taxation--all providing services to over 1,500 clients. In January 2013, Timothy McHale became the fourth Partner in the firm alongside Ken Cerini, Eliatt Di Lieto and Matthew Burke.
C&A has a high level of employee satisfaction, low turnover and the ability to recruit talented professionals. Staff consistency allows C&A to minimize staffing changes which helps to reduce costs to clients and ensures long-term relationships.
The employee growth and low turnover has allowed C&A to receive several recognitions including: “Best Accounting Firm to Work For” by Accounting Today, the “Reverend Monsignore Thomas J. Hartman Humanitarian Award honoring Accounting Excellence on Long Island” by the Advancement in Commerce, Industry and Technology Association, the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility (2008-2012), and many other staff level awards and recognitions.
Over the past 20 years, Cerini & Associates has established itself as a leader in several industries, including: nonprofit, healthcare, school district and special education. The firm has expanded its service to include specialties in areas such as: trust and estate planning, tax controversy and litigation support.
“We’re thrilled to be celebrating such a significant milestone,” said Ken Cerini, Managing Partner. “Over the last two decades we have expanded our service offerings, grown our business, and have made meaningful connections with our clients. We would like to extend our sincere appreciation and thanks to our clients, friends and associates who have made this exciting milestone possible.”
C&A will celebrate this anniversary with a cocktail reception for their existing clients, friends, associates and colleagues in October at the Woodbury Country Club.
