What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I am an accounting and audit Senior Manager in Anchin’s Real Estate Group. I provide financial reporting, advisory, and tax services to privately held companies. I work with clients of varying specialties, including owners and operators of commercial, industrial, and residential real estate entities; real estate funds; and employee benefit plans. Additionally, I am a key member of Anchin’s Emerging Manager Platform (EMP) group. The EMP group assists start-up hedge, private equity, real estate, and venture capital firms manage their funds through every phase of business - from start-up through winding down. I find it extremely rewarding to work alongside our EMP clients as we guide them through the fund lifecycle by assisting them with a strong launch to grow their fund over time.
