Richard Higgins will lead McCarthy & Co. PC’s Garden State office.
The Lafayette Hill, Pa.-based accounting and advisory firm announced on Monday that Higgins will take the helm at the Beachwood location, which serves clients in both New Jersey and New York.
In additional to traditional accounting, audit and tax services, the company said Higgins has extensive experience with clients in the construction and real estate industries. He also works on expansions to bond capacity and obtaining financing for clients to grow their business.
Higgins joined the firm following the 2016 merger of Mazur, Kreighbaum and Higgins CPAs LLC into McCarty & Co.
A member of the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, he is licensed to practice in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
Higgins is also a member of the Utility Transportation Contractors Association, the National Association of Surety Bond Professionals and, McCarthy & Co. said, is frequently published in construction trade publications such as Construction Executive This Week, Utility Transportation Contractor and MCC Construction Zone.
“I am truly honored to be named managing principal,” Higgins said in a prepared statement. “I will now have the privilege of leading our construction accounting team in addition to serving my clients.”
