WithumSmith+Brown PC welcomes Kim Waldman to new business development role

Friday, January 24, 2020
Opalesque Industry Update - WithumSmith+Brown (Withum) PC, a top nationally ranked advisory and CPA firm, has announced the appointment of Kim Waldman to its New York City office team where she will spearhead all business development initiatives for its Financial Services Group.

In this role, the Fairfield County, CT resident will serve as a conduit for expanding Withum's client relationships while elevating the firm's overall competitive positioning.

Waldman possesses more than 20 years' accounting and business development experience within the alternative-investment and digital-asset industries. Throughout the course of her career, she has collaborated with asset managers, institutional investors, enterprises and industry partners to address complex fund administration and operational solutions. Prior to joining Withum, Waldman most recently held leadership roles at a top crypto and data management solutions provider as well as a national accounting and consulting firm specializing in audits and tax issues for private companies, the investment industry and real estate and private equity groups.

"Kim's background in both financial services and crypto asset solutions are a tremendous value add to our talented Financial Services team as well as Withum's diverse client base," said Tom Angell, practice leader of Withum's Financial Service Group. "We welcome her contributions and track-record of success in identifying the latest challenges faced by asset managers and the creativity for which she is known in structuring solutions that address middle- and back-office needs with the alternative investment sector."

Withum's Financial Services Group is a one-stop resource for a diverse roster of private equity, hedge funds and venture capital clients, including domestic funds, offshore funds and fund of funds. From startups to long-established organizations, the group's team of auditors, tax professionals and internal quality control specialists are committed to advancing each entity's strategies and objectives while ensuring reporting standards and tax compliance.

Waldman has forged numerous relationships with some of the industry's most prominent alternative investment entities. She will continue to build and foster relationships with both emerging and well-established organizations.

"The alternative investment landscape is evolving at such a rapid pace in terms of technology and regulation that asset managers are more reliant than ever on advisory, tax and audit services from a financial services industry leader like Withum," said Waldman. "I'm eager to assist current and prospective clients by matching them with Withum's experts in order to leverage assets, employ the most effective solutions and build on their collaborative capabilities at the highest levels."

Established in 1974, Withum is a national top-ranking public accounting firm providing advisory, tax and audit services to businesses and individuals on a local-to-global scale. In addition to its New York office and Princeton, N.J., headquarters, additional offices are located in major financial centers including Boston, MA; Irvine, CA; Philadelphia, PA; Washington, DC and Orlando. Withum is an independent member of HLB, the global advisory and accounting network.
