Promoting financial longevity for your business with Ren Cicalese

Managing shareholder and officer of the CPA firm, Ren received his bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University. He is certified in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and is a member of the American Institute of CPAs, including the Tax, Information Technology, and Personal Financial Planning Divisions.

With nearly 40 years of accounting, tax, and advisory experience to his name, Ren has earned certification as a Personal Financial Specialist (PFS), a prestigious and exclusive distinction shared by approximately 5,000 CPAs nationwide. He has also achieved designation as a Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA), recognizing his ability to provide financial and non-financial guidance to businesses on performance, growth, and in making critical business decisions based on his extensive experience in public accounting, financial and management accounting, consulting, and the management and operations of the firm.

Ren doesn’t know this, but when I first started my agency several years back, I always wanted Ren as a client. His firm was huge, they were awful at marketing at the time and their website was just ok. I knew he would be the perfect client.

So I did everything I could to get a meeting with him and his team, it didn’t work out initially, but what did was a great friendship. 

Now fully transparent, he is a member of Penji, but what I love about Ren is his ability to want to help others. You can hear it in his voice and there’s a digital log of every time him and his company does something good within the community. 

He is passionate about business. He’s a straight shooter. He tells it like it is and I admire that greatly. 

I wanted to have Ren on the show because getting financial advice is important. A CPA or an accountant in general aren’t your enemies, they are your friends. They want to see you succeed and do what they can for you to obtain financial freedom.

This is something I wish I learned early on in my career. IF you don’t have a CPA or an accounting firm that helps you grow, get one today. This isn’t a direct plug for Alloy Silverstein, but find one that’s local to you. 

It’s a must.
