Citrin Cooperman has announced that its co-founder Niles Citrin will retire from the firm on 30 June 2021.
For over 40 years, Citrin has worked side-by-side with the group’s co-founder and CEO, Joel Cooperman to build the $340m accountancy and tax firm which operates in 16 locations with over 1300 partners and employees.
Commenting on his planned retirement, Niles said: “At age 71, I am looking forward to spending more time with my family and having the opportunity to pursue many things that I so often intended to do but couldn’t due to the time demands of my role at the firm.
“When I look back, I don’t think I ever could have imagined, in 1979, what the firm would become. It’s been an amazing journey, and I look forward to seeing the continued evolution of Citrin Cooperman. As the road ahead moves forward, I know there will be exciting times ahead.”
Cooperman added: “I could not have found a better person to be in business with, Niles often brought a perspective that while different than mine, was always well thought out and because of our mutual respect for each other, we always were able to agree on how to advance our business.”
