As a Director in the Firm's Accounting Services department, Ira Kantor oversees staff responsible for offering a host of professional services for numerous client engagements. Although he has extensive experience serving clients in a variety of industries, Mr. Kantor has developed a niche working with closely-held businesses within the construction industry, including several large general contractors and specialty sub-contractors, and serves as the Firm's Long Island Regional Leader for its National Construction Industry Group. He assists his clients with financial statement preparation, tax compliance and planning, budgeting and forecasting, and business consulting.

Since joining the Firm in 1995, Mr. Kantor has been given increasing levels of responsibility; being named Manager in 1996, Senior Manager in 2006 and Director in 2007. In addition, he was one of the select few who participated in Marcum's Emerging Leadership Program, a top-level training program.

Mr. Kantor frequently speaks at industry organizations including the U.S. Small Business Administration on topics related to accounting and bookkeeping. He has more than 20 years experience. Earlier in his career, Mr. Kantor was with a regional accounting firm where he first developed his specialty of serving construction-related businesses.
