Boyer & Ritter announces Daniel Thompson retiring, but will continue consulting with the firm as Principal Emeritus
After 44 years of assisting Boyer & Ritter’s clients to achieve their goals, Daniel P. Thompson has moved to a Principal Emeritus role.
Thompson will continue to play a crucial consulting role as a key advisor to the firm's Dealership Services Group, which serves more than 300 dealers in Pennsylvania and the Middle-Atlantic region and continue to work with the firm’s dealership clients on a variety of special projects. In addition, he will also assist clients working with Keystone Advisors, a joint venture with law firm McNees Wallace & Nurick that works with companies seeking to buy or sell auto dealerships.
“Dan’s contributions to Boyer & Ritter have been significant and meaningful since the very beginning,’’ said Boyer & Ritter CEO Robert J. Murphy, CPA, CVA/ABV. “His continued role in our dealership practice is a real benefit for our firm and our clients.
Thompson served as chair of the Dealer Services Group for many years and over the past several years has transitioned his dealer relationships to our next generation leaders.
Jay Goldman, with more than 30 years of experience in the automotive dealership industry, has served as co-chair of the Dealer Services Group in recent years and will continue in that capacity going forward as it continues to experience significant growth.
Boyer & Ritter continues to build upon its solid foundation with solid leadership. The firm also recently announced the addition of a COO, Lisa Myers, who also chairs the Advisory Services group, the election of three new principal-owners and two principals, and the addition of Jay Goldman, Chair of the Dealership Services group, onto the executive committee.
“We have worked hard at setting the bar high and integrating best practices with our technical skills. Our strategic succession planning is effective, our team is strong, and we are excited about our future” Mr. Murphy concluded.
