Armanino LLP, a national accounting and consulting firm, has added a team of nearly 30 professionals from Prager Metis CPAs specializing in business management for the entertainment sector.

The move will give California-based Armanino its first East Coast location, with a new office in New York City.

Entertainment industry advisors Craig Manzino and Marc Rosen will join the firm as partners. Twenty-six members of their team will also join Armanino.

Manzino and Rosen were previously partners at Cameo Wealth & Creative Management, a boutique business management firm specializing in entertainers and entertainment organizations. The firm was acquired by Prager Metis CPAs in 2018.

Manzino, Rosen, and their team bring extensive experience supporting organizations and high-net-worth clients in the entertainment industry and the arts – including directors, actors, producers, and writers. Their expertise spans business management, royalty auditing, tour accounting, tax planning and compliance, and international tax.
