Top 100 Firm WeiserMazars LLP has appointed Victor Wahba to succeed Douglas Phillips as the chief executive officer of the firm as of April 1, 2015. Phillips will continue to serve as chairman.

“Having led the firm as its chairman and CEO for the past fifteen years, I am confident that Victor possesses the wisdom, foresight and other attributes needed to guide WeiserMazars into the future. I have worked with him for many years, and I know that he will provide the firm with the energy and drive to continue to grow, as well as fostering the well-established professional and social culture of WeiserMazars,” Phillips said in a statement.

This is part of WeiserMazars’ national expansion strategy and leadership succession plan. Wahba who moved up from managing partner, served on the firm’s executive committee for nearly a decade, including overseeing recent mergers and acquisitions which were designed to advance the firm’s national strategic plan.

“I have been part of WeiserMazars’ leadership for many years, and am proud of how the firm has grown and where we are headed. It is an honor for me to be named the CEO at this time of exciting development for our organization,” commented Victor. “I will continue to build on the foundation established by the outstanding contributions of our people for nearly a century. I am excited and look forward to helping the firm continue to be a place filled with exceptional people delivering exceptional client service locally, nationally and internationally.”

In addition to his experience leading the WeiserMazars New York office and serving on the firm’s executive committee, Wahba is a member of Mazars Group’s global executive board, where he helps determine strategy for the international accounting, tax, and consulting firm, which has a presence in 73 countries.
