New England regional accounting firm Caturano and Co. has named Christopher MacKenzie as its new chief operating officer in an effort to rebuild its leadership.

MacKenzie has worked for the firm, known until recently as Vitale Caturano, for more than 24 years. The firm dropped the Vitale part of the name in March after one of the firm’s co-founders was indicted last year for lobbying and campaign finance violations (see Vitale Caturano Shortens Name). Now MacKenzie will help the other co-founder, president and CEO Richard Caturano, lead the firm.

MacKenzie has been a member of the firm’s executive committee, and served as division leader of the owner-managed business practice, as well as a key member of the management and technology steering committees.

He has also overseen the firm’s wealth management and consulting practice areas, and led several practice management functions, including internal technology, finance, treasury and operations.

He also has extensive client service experience, including tax advisory and compliance services, along with audit and other attest services for owner-managed companies in industries such as health care, financial services, manufacturing and distribution. MacKenzie has worked closely with upper management at various clients to establish performance measurement systems, consult on transaction structuring, and assist with business succession strategies.

“As COO, I welcome this opportunity to help lead our firm to continued success,” he said in a statement.
