squaresRon Ries

Ron has significant experience providing audit, tax and consulting services to both not-for-profit and for-profit organizations. Over the past twenty years, he has concentrated on the not-for-profit sector, including public accounting work with the firm Goldstein Golub Kessler LLP where he ultimately became head of their Not-For-Profit Services Practice. More recently, Ron spent five years as Chief Financial Officer at Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services, a $200 Million Social Services Agency. After experiencing the opportunity and perspective provided by working at a not-for-profit organization, Ron decided to re-enter public accounting with WeiserMazars, where he could again serve clients by helping them improve their operating, fiscal and management functions.

Previously, Ron worked with manufacturing and distribution companies, operating holding companies with worldwide operations, and assisted privately held businesses and professional practices. This experience included nine years as Chief Financial Officer at a publicly traded precious metals company.

Ron currently sits on several Boards of Not-for-Profit organizations, including as both Treasurer and Chair of their Audit Committees.

Ron lectures and writes frequently on operating and fiscal matters, primarily in the not-for-profit sector, and is a contributing editor at The Practical Accountant, a professional publication.

Ron received his BBA degree from The City College of New York and is a licensed CPA in the State of New York. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public accountants and the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants, where he sits on the Accounting for Non-Profit Organizations Committee. Ron also recently obtained his accreditation as a Chartered Global Management Accountant, a new professional designation.
