A practicing CPA for more than 30 years, Lenny specializes in business management, consulting and taxation with extensive experience in the entertainment and software industries.
Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Lenny started his CPA practice in Los Angeles and later merged his accounting and tax practice into CMRK in 1999. During the Vietnam War, he was stationed with the U.S. Air Force in Thailand where he was awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal for Meritorious Service.

“Public accounting is so much more than preparing tax returns,” says Lenny. “It’s ensuring an individual’s or organization’s financial position is properly cared for and safeguarded. That’s our mission, to supply technical knowledge and experience to help clients succeed financially.”
From 2012 to 2014, Lenny served as National Coordinator for the CPA USA Association. In that capacity, he played a key role in formulating topical agendas for the association’s semiannual events. He also coordinated group meetings and moderated discussions.
