Russell B. Shinsky, Anchin’s Managing Partner, Featured Among LIBN’s 2023 Top 25 Influencers in Accounting
Russell B. Shinsky is managing partner and a member of the executive committee at Anchin, which celebrates its 100th year as an independent firm this year. Shinsky leads the accounting, tax and advisory firm with strong values, a forward-looking vision and an unwavering commitment to providing the highest standards of service to best meet the needs of the firm’s diverse clients.
An entrepreneurial and transformative leader with more than three decades of experience, Shinsky has been instrumental in the strategic expansion of Anchin’s practice areas and its geographic footprint. The firm, which has offices in Manhattan, opened a Uniondale office in February 2021, followed by a third office, in Boca Raton, Fla., in July 2022. Shinsky’s emphasis on client service excellence and technical competency has helped earn Anchin a reputation as a premier accounting and advisory firm. Under his leadership, Anchin has elevated its standing and continued its many years of recognition as an employee-centered organization fostering the professional advancement, personal fulfillment and well-being of its employees. That culture has contributed to the firm’s multiple consecutive placements on the prestigious Crain’s New York Business Best Places to Work list, as well as the New York State Society for Human Resource Management’s 2023 list of the Best Companies to Work For in New York. The latter award marks the 16th consecutive year that Anchin has received this distinction since the inception of the program. Another hallmark of Shinsky’s leadership are the strong core values he imparts across environmental, social and governance matters, including diversity and inclusion.
Shinsky has deep knowledge and extensive experience across various industries, including law firms, architecture and engineering, construction, compensation and benefits, manufacturing and distribution. He provides sound advice to clients that extends beyond their accounting and tax needs to encompass areas such as succession planning, mergers and acquisitions, and strategic alliances.
Shinsky has been a speaker and panelist at prominent professional and industry conferences over the years. Well-respected by his peers, he is an active member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants.
Established in 1923, Anchin is an independent member of BKR International, a network of more than 160 firms with more than 500 offices in over 80 countries around the world.
