Jeffrey Zudeck, Partner-in-Charge of the Philadelphia Office, Featured in Philadelphia Business Journal Article, "Marcum Adds Investment Bank CFO as Philly Office Managing Partner."
By Jeff Blumenthal
Jeffrey D. Zudeck, chief financial officer for investment banking firm Fundamental Holdings Ltd., has joined Marcum as partner-in-charge of its Philadelphia regional offices. He will replace David Glusman, who has managed the New York firm's Philadelphia area operations ever since it acquired 70-person Bala Cynwyd-based Margolis & Co. in 2009.
Zudeck will be responsible for the firm's tax, audit and advisory services and work on growing the firm's Philadelphia business. Glusman will remain a partner at the firm.
Zudeck served less than two years as CFO at Fundamental. Prior to that, he spent 23 years at New York-based Friedman LLP, where he rose to executive partner and partner-in-charge of the SEC and transaction services group and the firm's New Jersey offices.
While at Friedman, he developed a friendship with competitor Marcum Managing Partner Jeffrey M. Weiner. Glusman said he and Weiner had been talking for the past few years about finding his successor as Philadelphia office head.
"We wanted it to be the right time, method and person," Glusman said. "If we did not find the right person, we would not be doing this right now."
