“Our firm has built a reputation serving nonprofits locally, nationally and around the world for more than 30 years,” Oneto said in a statement. “We have also seen other niches mature during this period including valuations, litigation support, tax, estate and financial planning, and services for international non-governmental organizations. Under David’s leadership, we have enjoyed significant growth and success. I look forward to helping Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman navigate the complex operating environment in which professional accountants offer their expertise.”

Oneto specializes in nonprofit audit services and benefit plan audit services for 401(k), 401(a), 403(b), profit-sharing, pension, health and welfare plans.
