Anchin Names Russell B. Shinsky as Co-Managing Partner
We are pleased to announce that Russell B. Shinsky has been elected as Anchin’s Co-Managing Partner, effective October 1st. Russell will serve alongside current Managing Partner, Frank A. Schettino, who is scheduled to retire September 30, 2020. Russell will become the seventh Managing Partner in Anchin’s nearly 100-year history, and like Frank, has spent his entire professional career at the firm.
Russell has been with the firm for 27 years and has served as a member of Anchin’s Executive Committee since 2015. He has been the Practice Group Leader of the firm’s Services group and leads the firm’s Assurance Practice. He has built a strong reputation for the firm among industry stakeholders, particularly in legal services, and has been instrumental in consulting with law firms on traditional accounting and tax matters, as well as improving operational aspects of their businesses.
“I am looking forward to working alongside Frank during the next year to shape how we will continue to deliver outstanding service to our clients, help them grow and achieve their objectives in an increasingly complex landscape. I have always deeply valued the people, unique culture and history of our almost 100-year-old firm, and am honored to continue that tradition of excellence. I am also excited to apply new technologies to drive innovation and lead the firm and our people into Anchin’s next successful chapter,” said Russell.
Frank will continue as Co-Managing Partner while working closely with Russell and the other members of the Executive Committee on firm strategy, client service and operations decisions. “Russell’s vision for the future of the firm and emphasis on our talent and embracing innovation is exciting, and I am looking forward to seeing Anchin continue to grow under his leadership. In this period of rapid industry change, Russell sees the inherent challenges, yet more importantly, the opportunities for growth,” Frank said.
