Accomplished tax advisor to bolster Firm’s work with financial institutions and high-net-worth individuals
PKF O’Connor Davies, LLP, one of the nation’s largest accounting, tax and advisory firms, today announced that it has hired William Conron as Partner. With more than 25 years of experience developing tax solutions for both individuals and businesses, Conron joins the Firm’s expanding tax practice, where he will primarily serve financial institutions and high-net-worth individuals. His multifaceted background reinforces the deep expertise of the Firm’s professionals, as well as the industry-leading value the Firm delivers to its clients. Conron will be based out of the Firm’s Harrison, NY, office.
“Over a career spanning more than two decades, Bill has positioned himself as a true advisor and strategist committed to helping clients maximize their opportunities and mitigate risks,” said Ann Buscaglia, Partner-in-Charge of Tax and Co-Partner-in-Charge of the Harrison Office. “I have no doubt that his extensive experience will strengthen our tax offerings.”
Throughout his career, Conron has focused his work on the tax consulting, compliance and planning needs of family offices, private equity firms and real estate sponsors, as well as their founders and operating partners. His work has benefited clients through all stages of the investment cycle, from due diligence through the eventual exit of the investment. Conron also has significant experience working with emerging companies, family-owned businesses and established middle-market companies in manufacturing and distribution, franchising and retail. Prior to joining the Firm, he worked for two “Big Four” accounting firms, as well as a regional firm based in Norwalk, CT.
“PKF O’Connor Davies prides itself on bringing value to every client interaction, which is something I’ve been committed to throughout my career,” said Conron. “I look forward to bringing the insights and best practices I’ve gained to my new work with the Firm.”
Conron is a graduate of Providence College, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. He currently serves as Finance Chair of the Tri-State Chapter of the Exit Planning Exchange. He is a past recipient of the Fairfield County Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” award in recognition of his contributions to the community and workplace.
