New York — December 20, 2018 — Top 50 accounting and advisory firm Friedman LLP announced today that Donald Logan has joined the firm’s headquarters as the Chief Information Officer (“CIO”). Don’s extensive background supporting the unique IT needs of the accounting profession will further enhance our already well-fortified IT structure as we continue to expand Friedman’s capabilities in this critical area.
Don brings more than 20 years of strategic IT experience in the professional services space. Prior to joining Friedman, he held several leadership roles at a number of accounting firms where he drove the analysis and re-engineering of existing business processes, identified and developed the capability to use new tools, reshaped the enterprise’s physical infrastructure and network access, and identified and exploited the enterprise’s knowledge resources.
In addition to helping ensure that systems and networks are leveraging industry best practices, Don will play an integral role at Friedman, keeping his finger on the pulse of technology trends in the marketplace. By staying one step ahead of the curve, he will help the firm navigate the continual technology changes through strategic IT planning.
“As both our firm and the needs of our clients expand, so must our approach to technology. Don brings a wealth of specialized experiences, having supported the unique needs of the tax and accounting space,” said Harriet Greenberg, Co-Managing Partner and leader of the Fashion and Diamond and Jewelry Practices at Friedman. “Beyond his clear understanding of the technology space, Don is a proven strategist with the necessary insight to keep Friedman at the forefront of innovation.”

At Friedman, we strive to fill each seat with the best and the most exceptional individuals in the industry,” said Fred Berk, Friedman’s Co-Managing Partner and Co-Chair of the Real Estate Group. “There’s no doubt in my mind that Don will help further our current IT Department’s already robust offerings to deliver the continued strategic and multi-faceted support that are much-needed in an ever-changing landscape.”
