Thomas Engelhardt -Partner Marks Paneth & Shron, LLP
Thomas Engelhardt’s efforts have helped clients not only to weather a tough economy, but to grow. One client, a trendy New York City branding agency, was in a critical situation in 2008: Sales in the advertising sector had plummeted, and its CFO, accountant, and much of its staff had left.
Engelhardt guided the company in a complete overhaul of its accounting processes, brought fresh insights to financial statements, and projections, and helped it find its path to the future.
“Tom’s strategic planning enabled key shareholders to not only salvage their business, but ultimately collect their full anticipated salaries at a level that maximized their corporate pension benefits,” says an insider. As of this writing, the agency has landed a major new client and its prospects are bright.
