Mazars, a leading audit, tax, and advisory firm in the U.S., announced that effective Sept. 1, 2021, Rachel Efthemes, Benjamin Hutterer and Stephen Saluccio of the Mazars New Jersey office have been named partners.
“Each of the individuals named partner or principal this year has demonstrated a commitment to living The Mazars Way – not only delivering exceptional client service and contributing to the ongoing growth of the firm, but also pushing new, innovative ideas, inspiring and motivating our people. Each member of this year’s Partner Class is a leader and a team builder, dedicated to developing the skills of others and creating a legacy of success. I look forward to seeing the great things I know they will do in the future,” said Mazars in the U.S. Chairman and CEO Victor Wahba.
