Mazars Poaches Someone From KPMG and Issues a Press Release, Part I

When Mazars USA isn’t getting subpoenaed for Donald Trump’s tax returns, it’s snagging people away from the Big 4, in particular, KPMG.

Olga Blyweiss

Olga Blyweiss is one of the newest members of Club M, recently joining the firm as a tax partner in its Fort Washington, PA, office.

In a previous life, Blyweiss was the managing director of KPMG’s Business Tax Services practice in Philadelphia, where she served clients primarily in the real estate, private equity, and professional services markets.

She also was the co-leader of the firm’s Family Office Group and Private Client Services practice  in Philadelphia.

Blyweiss will also focus on private client services at Mazars, helping both business owners and high-net-worth individuals retain wealth across generations, according to a press release.

Blyweiss, who has more than 20 years of experience providing tax compliance and consulting services to pass-through entities and closely-held family-owned businesses and their individual owners, also worked at EY for a short time, as a senior tax manager, and at midtier firms such as ParenteBeard (now Baker Tilly) and Marcum, according to her LinkedIn profile.

She is currently a board member of the Blue White Scholarship Foundation.

Another relatively new addition to Mazars’ national tax practice also came from KPMG. Terence Coppinger joined the firm in August as a tax partner in the Long Island office.

He has nearly 25 years of experience advising clients in the areas of global tax information reporting and IRS practice and procedure. Coppinger most recently was a tax partner for three years at KPMG before leaving the firm in April. He also has previously worked at Deloitte and the IRS, according to his LinkedIn profile.
