New York, NY (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
The SDDCO Group, a leading provider of outsourced accounting, tax, regulatory compliance and FinOp solutions to the financial services field, appoints Andrew D. Miller as Partner and Michael G. Glynn as Principal of S.D. Daniels & Co., P.C.
Andy Miller, Partner of S.D. Daniels & Co., P.C., is a certified public accountant and a FINRA registered Series 27 Financial Operations Principal. Andy, who joined the firm in 2006, has over twenty years of experience in the financial services industry. His diversified experience includes financial, management and S.E.C. reporting along with controller responsibilities.
Andy earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Rhode Island and began his accounting career with KPMG Peat Marwick specializing in the banking industry. Subsequent positions include Audit Manager with Citigroup, Inc., Vice President of Management Reporting for BNY Brokerage, and Assistant Vice President with Merrill, Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith in the International Private Banking Group.
Mike Glynn, Principal of S.D. Daniels & Co., P.C., is a Fellow Chartered Certified Accountant, a FINRA registered Series 27 Financial Operations Principal, and an international member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. A member of the SDDCO Group since 2007, he provides accounting and FinOp services informed by over twenty years of industry experience.
Mike earned his Bachelor of Business Studies from the University of Limerick and began his career at the public accounting firm William J. O’Connor & Co. in Dublin. He later relocated to New York, where he served as Senior Analyst for Paine Webber Inc., Financial Controller for Tucker Anthony Inc., and Financial Controller for Wall Street Access. Prior to joining SDDCO, Mike acted as US Head of Finance for Macquarie Bank Limited.
About the Fit
Andy's Big 4 auditing background and extensive institutional brokerage experience made him a skilled mentor to other professionals at the firm.
Mike's expertise in unique issues related to foreign brokers servicing institutional accounts in the U.S. prepared him well for his role at SDDCO, a firm with a broad global client base.
The simultaneous rise of Andy and Mike within The SDDCO Group is a best fit scenario for both of them. “For me, working with the firm is a great fit,” said Mike. “SDDCO is large enough where I can service bigger clients and small enough where I can just pick up the phone and ask any senior partner a question.”
Andy agrees, “Communication is the greatest benefit to working here. Fast and constructive feedback from my colleagues helps me service my clients more effectively. When I compare the SDDCO experience to my work with large corporations, everyone here is more open and available.”
The two new principals joined the ranks of eight other partners of a mid-sized firm that is further expanding in May. SDDCO will soon occupy the 15th floor of 485 Madison Avenue where a build-out was commissioned to double their space but maintain a small business feel. Their goal is to steadily grow in talent but to continue to foster the kind of workplace "where everybody knows your name" and every employee is well supported. The SDDCO Group cheers Mike Glynn and Andy Miller for their leadership skills and new, executive positions.
Born 1952 in NYC, The SDDCO Group delivers outsourced support to financial services clients including broker/dealers, investment advisers, privately held funds and the U.S. arms of foreign banks. SDDCO services include SEC and FINRA memberships, accounting, FinOp, tax, AML testing, brokerage advising and regulatory compliance. The continued success of the business is evidenced by a high rate of referrals and enduring client ties.
