Ron Ries has returned to the accounting profession as partner in the not-for-profit group of WeiserMazars LLP.

“It’s great to be back in public accounting, leveraging my experience as CFO of a large social services organization to provide the best service possible to other not-for-profit organizations,” Ries said in a statement.

“Our Not-for-Profit Group is well positioned to meet the unique needs of this sector and Ron’s expertise will complement the skills of our existing team,” Mitchell Lewis, WeiserMazars’ partner-in-charge, not-for-profit group said in a statement. “Ron’s hands-on experience in the not-for-profit field will provide us with additional insight into the unique accounting and management issues of clients in this space, allowing us to closely tailor our services to their needs.”

Ries has more than 20 years of experience serving not-for-profit organizations. Prior to WeiserMazars, Ries served as the chief financial officer at the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services.

He sits on several boards of not-for-profit organizations including Selfhelp Community Services, Inc. and Wall Street Technology Association where he serves as chair of the Audit Committee and treasurer, respectively. He also chairs the AICPA’s not-for-profit Financial Executive Forum annual conference.
