Waldman joining wealth management firm

Lawrence Waldman will join wealth management firm First Long Island Investors next month as a managing director, the firm announced Tuesday.

Waldman, a former managing partner at KPMG and currently an adviser at EisnerAmper, will join a team that oversees $1.3 billion in assets for wealthy individuals, families and select institutions, the firm said.

“This is a natural progression for me that builds upon my career in public accounting, serving public and private companies across various industries as well as my relationships with and knowledge of the Long Island business community,” said Waldman, who also serves as chairman of the Long Island Association and as a board member and audit committee chairman for several public and private companies.

Robert D. Rosenthal, FLII’s chairman, CEO and chief investment officer, said Waldman has “continuously worked with and been a trusted colleague of the firm and our clients. We are proud to add such a prominent and well-respected member of the Long Island business community to our team.”
