“Over the years I’ve learned that responsiveness is crucial to success in the accounting profession. By meeting deadlines and responding to my clients’ questions and concerns in a timely manner, I am able to show them I value the relationship we’ve formed.”

As a team member at LCS&Z since 2003, Jeff has developed significant expertise in providing attest, tax and consulting services to the firm’s clients.  He has worked extensively with clients in the transportation, architecture, manufacturing, wholesale and insurance industries.  In addition, Jeff is in charge of the firm’s employee benefit plan audit practice which has grown significantly under his direction.

Jeff has accomplished a lot in his 15 years in the accounting profession, but he is most proud of the work he has done with the firm’s employee benefit plan clients.  He has worked closely with plan sponsors to ensure compliance with regulatory agencies and is often consulted on deficient plans that are in need of an experienced auditor or consultant.

Jeff’s expertise has landed him several speaking engagements.  He is currently a speaker for the NYSSCPA’s program on Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession and has lectured at conferences for the NYS School Bus Contractors Association and the NYS Bar Association.

Jeff attributes his success to a strong work ethic instilled in him from his parents and grandparents, the belief in the power of teamwork and the continual desire to learn.

Jeff is an avid sports fan and enjoys playing baseball and golf.  Jeff has been involved in the Halfmoon Baseball league as a coach and director of player development for the last 15 years.  He is currently the head coach for the travel baseball team his son plays on.
