Is there such a thing as a passionate accountant?
If you have to ask that question, you haven't met Andrew Laufer.
Andrew is an energetic, enthusiastic and insightful advocate for his clients and their enterprises. An accomplished CPA who readily grasps a financial picture, Andrew is able to translate those numbers into what they really mean for the business' overall health and viability. He also understands how small - and seemingly simple - adjustments can result in significant cost savings and increased margins.
Whether helping a client determine if upgrading a piece of equipment will really pay off, working diligently to obtain needed financing or providing training and information that empower clients to be better advocates for themselves, Andrew's approach is strategic and resourceful, Andrew thrives on the interchange of ideas and exploration of possibilities, and his clients value his dynamic approach.
Andrew started at Landau Arnold Laufer in 1986 and became managing partner in 2004. During his time with the firm, he has developed a deep expertise in the issues associated with franchise accounting and operations. Clients throughout the United States - including owner/operators of nearly 350 McDonald's franchises - rely on Andrew's expertise to build their businesses. Andrew maintains a demanding travel schedule, frequently visiting clients and speaking at various conferences and events. He is also regularly called as an expert witness on business valuations.
In addition to the usual professional organizations - the New York State Society of Certified Professional Accountants and the AICPA - Andrew is active in his community. He regularly raises funds for local children's charities and local hospitals. Andrew has had a longstanding involvement with the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island and became chair of its board in its 25th anniversary year.
During his all-too-scarce free time, Andrew enjoys golfing (although he wishes his handicap were lower) and boating. He also loves spending time with his two daughters and with his wife, Eileen, who has been part of his life since he was 17.

My job is different every single day. I never know what's going to happen from the time I get up until the time I go to sleep. That's what I love about what I do; I am driven to help people in whatever way I can.
