Mr. Weiner has been singled out for his leadership role in the accounting industry. In 2016, he became the first and only U.S. accounting firm leader to be twice named an “MP Elite” by Accounting Today. In inducting Mr. Weiner to the exclusive MP Elite class, the publication noted his achievement in continually growing Marcum’s revenue, reach and relevance. “[Mr.] Weiner was a member of our inaugural class of the MP Elite in 2012, and it’s no accident that he returns this year - he’s one of the most admired firm leaders in the country, and continues to lead Marcum to new heights, remaining just as aggressive in both M&A and organic growth. When he first made the list, we noted his national drive; now we can note his international drive, with a major presence in China. He keeps the firm innovative with new offerings in practice areas like LGBT services, cybersecurity, and alternative investments, and built a stable of affiliated companies in wealth management, technology, executive search and more…Weiner is truly one of the Elite,” the editors wrote. The MP Elite are a group of accounting firm leaders “who point the way to the future, who set the best practices that others follow, and who lead the most successful, most admired firms.” Just eight accounting firm leaders nationwide were selected as members of the MP Elite class of 2016.
Mr. Weiner was previously recognized by Accounting Today as one of the industry’s Top 100 Most Influential People of 2010.
