Accountant to the Stars

Join Lubin’s Executive in Residence Richard Feldstein as he discusses accounting and celebrity and what it’s like to have entertainment industry clients.

On Monday, October 8 join the Lubin School as they host this fall’s NYC Campus Executive in Residence Richard Feldstein, CFA/PFS, partner at Nigro Karlin Segal & Feldstein, LLP.

Feldstein is a prime example of what happens when art and industry intersect. His clients—many of whom include screen writers, actors, musicians, composers, publishers, directors, and producers—are deeply connected to the entertainment industry.

“Mr. Feldstein was selected as an Executive in Residence,” says Tamara Kelly, associate director of Communications for Lubin, “to dispel the notion or idea that accounting is a ‘boring’ profession.”

During his lecture, Feldstein will discuss the importance of client relations in any business discipline, his experiences with clients relative to present issues, and the broad opportunities that exist in the accounting profession.
