Edelstein Announces Principal Promotions

We are happy to announce the promotion of five of our managers to principal.  These individuals are dedicated, hard-working, leaders whom we are excited to welcome to the principal level.  Congratulations to Bob, Mike, Greg, Kate, and Kyle!

Bob Babine

While his clients rely on him as a problem solver, audit manager and business consultant, Bob offers far more than accounting and audit management. Bob’s clients consider him a trusted advisor — a resource they can call anytime they have questions, need a reality check or want a reasoned, arm’s length perspective. Bob’s well-rounded background in audit, tax and consulting, allows him to help his clients with their financial and managerial accounting issues and devise practical, cost-effective ways to address them.

With a wide-angle perspective gained through his accounting experience with individuals and businesses, Greg is able to spot issues before they become problems.

Greg also works with nonprofit clients to improve internal controls, safeguarding them from material financial reporting misstatements or potential embezzlement of funds.

Kate Rooney
