Armanino Poaches Someone From RSM and Issues a Press Release, Part I

While Armanino didn’t help its newest partner escape the clutches of a Big 4 firm, it did nab him away from a top five firm, which is still a pretty good get.

Armanino LLP, one of the 25 largest accounting and business consulting firms in the U.S., today announced Patrick Chylinski has joined the firm as a consulting partner in its Downtown Los Angeles office focusing on the firm’s Forensics practice. Armanino’s Forensics practice assists clients in investigations, litigation support and fraud prevention with an experienced team of professionals who access a full spectrum of resources and tools to ensure high quality and value are brought to every engagement.

“Patrick is a great fit with Armanino’s core values and culture thanks to his leadership presence and growth mindset. His industry knowledge of technology, media, sports, entertainment, real estate, blockchain and healthcare is well-suited to work in concert with other firm practice areas to deliver maximum value for clients,” said Matt Armanino, CEO of Armanino LLP. “Patrick’s ties to the Southern California region and deep expertise in damage assessments and analysis, contract audits for royalties and licensing, and extensive expert witness testimony experience strengthen the practice group.”

Chylinski’s ties to the Southern California area are quite extensive. He most recently was the West Region Practice leader in litigation consulting and financial forensics for RSM in Los Angeles.

He also was based in California when he worked for 2011 and 2012 Going Concern March Madness champion Rothstein Kass and Stonefield Josephson, which merged with Marcum in 2010.

Nice poach, Armanino!
