Walter Timoshenko has been named chief operating officer at accounting and consulting firm Nussbaum Yates Berg Klein & Wolpow LLP.

Timoshenko will be working out of NYBKW's headquarters in Melville, N.Y., overseeing operations, management, marketing, and client service.

"We are thrilled to welcome Walter to NYBKW," said co-managing partner Steve Wolpow. "Walter has the leadership and industry experience coupled with a long track record of success that will serve us well as we grow our firm to the next level."

Wolpow further indicated that any growth would be carefully planned in order to "ensure that the affordable personalized client service NYBKW is legendary for would continue to flourish."

Named one of the Top 100 Most Influential People by Accounting Today, and one of Long Island's 40 under 40 by LIBN, Timoshenko has 20-plus years of experience in public and private company management, marketing, advertising, strategic planning, and operations. An associate of the American Bar Association, he has delivered speeches, CLE and CPE classes, presentations, and keynotes at various venues including law schools, the AICPA-sponsored Future of Accounting Leadership Forum, and the N.Y.C. Bar Association.

When asked why he chose NYBKW, Timoshenko replied, "Interestingly enough, it was the clients of NYBKW that I met with that really sold me on joining. They couldn't stop talking about how much they appreciated the individualized partner attention. How they slept well at night knowing that NYBKW was looking out for them. How they felt valued. I mean really, how many firms can say that these days?"

Co-managing partner Barry Berg added, "We first met Walter at the national AICPA events he chaired. He's been such a positive influence on so many people in the industry. He's high-energy, and has a world of experience. We are very happy he chose to join our team."

As the firm continues to grow, it will have the opportunity to tap into Timoshenko's senior management and leadership experience, which spans public and private companies and includes Grey Advertising/LHVB, media and entertainment law firm Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz, and several of the Northeast's largest accounting and consulting firms. He is also a corporate board member of the Y of Long Island, where he serves on the executive committee and is chairman of the communications committee.
