Working closely with the Firm’s C-Suite, and particularly its Chief Financial Officer and Chief Information Officer, Antico is charged with fostering a data mindset across the Firm and serving as a driving force behind the organization’s digital transformation. His appointment reflects the outsized role analytical decision making plays in today’s business environment as a means to promote organizational growth and innovation.

Antico also developed a new outsourced accounts receivable and collection management service offering for the Firm.
