Bruce Blasnik

Prior to my role with PKF O'Connor Davies, I served as a controller/CFO and as a managing partner in a venture capital fund. This experience offered a unique opportunity to gain perspective of our clients' situation; having spent time on their side of the table, I feel better positioned to understand specific needs.

He has expertise in auditing, accounting and financial reporting; merger and acquisition transaction support and due diligence; venture capital and private equity fund accounting and cost accounting.

Bruce works primarily with middle market companies in software and information technology, healthcare, media and advertising and professional services. Other industry experience includes manufacturing and distribution, venture capital and private equity, consumer products, mortgage banking, real estate and construction. He also has experience with clients in the not-for-profit sector, primarily intermediate and long-term care facilities and local voluntary health and welfare organizations.
