New York City, NY – Marcum LLP, a national accounting and advisory firm, today announced new leadership in its Illinois region. Effective immediately, Cary Buxbaum, CPA, is regional managing partner in Illinois. Mr. Buxbaum is a Tax & Business Services partner based in the Firm’s Chicago office at 500 West Monroe Street.

 

Jenny Deloy, CPA, was named office managing partner in Chicago and also continues as partner-in-charge of the Illinois Assurance Services department. Lisa Hanlon, CPA, is now office managing partner in Deerfield while remaining partner-in-charge of the Illinois Accounting Services department.

 

All three of the new Illinois leaders joined Marcum through the Firm's 2015 merger with Frost, Ruttenberg, & Rothblatt P.C., one of the Chicago region’s largest full-service accounting firms. Richard (Rick) Sgarlata, the former president of Frost who helped facilitate the merger as Marcum’s first Illinois regional managing partner, has relinquished that role in anticipation of retirement in 2018.

 

“Part of the vision when the firms combined was to leverage the outstanding talent on the Frost team to help drive Marcum’s continued growth and development in the Illinois region. Cary Buxbaum, Jenny Deloy, and Lisa Hanlon are all highly accomplished experts who will play key roles in Marcum’s future as one of Illinois’ leading accounting and advisory firms. We congratulate them all and wish them much success in their new roles. We also extend our thanks to Rick Sgarlata for his excellent leadership during the merger transition and look forward to our continued work together over the next several months,” said Jeffrey M. Weiner, Marcum’s chairman and chief executive officer.
