Cherry Bekaert LLP (“the Firm”), one of the country’s top public accounting and consulting firms, is proud to announce the return of Steven M. Siegel, CPA, as a practice leader in the Firm’s Assurance & Accounting Services group. He will be based out of Cherry Bekaert’s Tampa practice and provide audit services to clients in the technology, health and life sciences, and industrial sectors.
Siegel rejoins Cherry Bekaert after previously serving as a Senior Audit Manager with the Firm in 2011.

He has also assisted clients with the implementation of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act’s internal control audit requirements and transactions involving debt and private equity financing, IPOs, and mergers and acquisitions.
“Steve is an asset we are excited to have back. His experience and expertise will allow us to better serve our clients and grow our people,” stated Christopher Rux, Managing Partner of the Firm’s Tampa Bay practice. “We are blessed to have such a valuable resource in our Tampa Bay Practice.”
