Gary Sturisky, an industry veteran who has held various positions at EY, McGladrey and RSM is leading Marcum's National Advisory Practice with oversight for all non-compliance services across industry groups and service lines. The National Advisory Practice encompasses strategic consulting services across all Marcum service lines and industry groups. As practice leader, he heads a senior leadership team representing valuation, forensic and litigation services; tax advisory services; financial advisory services; transaction and integration advisory services; managed services; and technology consulting. Marcum has been one of the fastest growing independent accounting and advisory firms in the country with more than 2,300 professionals and 31 U.S. offices, plus eight offices overseas. "The announcement was in early February; the transition took place a few months before although I've been in contact and discussions with Marcum for about 12 months prior to onboarding," Sturisky says. Sturisky sat down with Consulting to discuss all of this in early March, just as the biggest impacts of Covid-19 were starting to be felt across the United States.
Consulting: First things first, how is the firm handling Covid-19?
Sturisky: At Marcum the most important thing right now is the health of our clients, associates and communities. This is unchartered territory for all of us. However, as Marcum has invested heavily in its technology infrastructure, the firm was able to make a seamless shift to a remote workforce. Our advisory teams, along with the rest of the firm, are currently engaged working with clients. We are closely monitoring the situation and have established a Coronavirus Resource Center to provide insightful and relevant information and webinars for our clients during this time. In addition, our advisory practice has accelerated bringing to market new offerings that our clients will require in the near-term, such as cybersecurity for a remote workforce (both home and office), cloud consulting, restructuring and bankruptcy services and business interruption insurance advisory consulting. Additionally we are providing lots of guidance to clients as it relates to the various stimulus and loan packages the government is making available.
