Managing Partner Alan Sobel made the announcement at the annual employee appreciation celebration in December, stating that Lipkin clearly demonstrated his leadership skills when he was in the role of Senior Manager at Sobel & Co. in the way he nurtured the team, focused on the firm’s clients and embraced the firm’s core values.”

“Adam not only embodies our client centric culture, but through his activities and philanthropy, including his critical role as a board member of the Essex County nonprofit organization Spectrum360, he exemplifies our commitment to caring about our people and our community.

Since his first day at Sobel & Co., Lipkin said it has been his goal to become a partner.

“The longer I have been here and the more responsibilities I have assumed, the more I have realized what a special firm this is—and the more eager I have been to make my own impact and to be a strong mentor for others,” said Lipkin.

According to the firm, Lipkin has a depth of experience leading engagements in the firm’s auditing and assurance department, working closely with clients across a range of industries with a special emphasis on the manufacturing and distribution sectors. In addition to his work on traditional assurance engagements, he has also served as a significant contributor on Sobel & Co.’s corporate and construction monitorship projects.

As such, Lipkin played a critical role as a member of the Fortress Monitoring Group forensic accounting team, assigned as Integrity Monitor for the construction of One World Trade Center, formerly known as the Freedom Tower. In this capacity, he performed field audits of trade contractors on the construction site and assumed responsibility for monitoring a major contractor as part of the project.

According to the firm, Lipkin’s expertise in these key niches over the years has proved to be an added benefit for Sobel & Co.’s clients—especially those in family businesses, who have come to rely on his insights and his business acumen.

Lipkin joined Sobel & Co. after graduating from Virginia Tech with both a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Information Systems and a Bachelor of Science in Finance. His career has progressed over the decades as Lipkin evolved into a well‐regarded CPA and business advisor. According to Sobel & Co., he has built a strong network of relationships across the tri‐state area and is highly respected in the business community.

Sobel & Co., established in 1956, has been serving middle-market, entrepreneurial and family-owned businesses since its inception. Today, the firm operates from a single office in Livingston, with more than 120 professionals throughout the firm working in a client-centric and nurturing culture that supports its reputation for delivering services and solutions across a range of industries.

Under the guidance of Alan Sobel, the firm was built on core values that speak to the staff’s commitment to each other, to clients and to the community. To learn more about Sobel & Co., click HERE
