By March 6, 2024No Comments

Woodland Hills, CA (March 6, 2024) – CNM LLP, a leading technical advisory firm, announced its 20th anniversary, a milestone fueled by an unwavering commitment to the growth of its professionals by living the company’s core values. CNM was founded in 2003 in Los Angeles. Today, CNM is known for helping start-ups, mid-market companies, and multi-national Fortune 500 companies identify and address critical business risk management and technical accounting issues in an effective and proactive way.

“CNM was built by a hard-working team of professionals who wanted to create a business where our professionals are prioritized over financial outcomes,” says Nathan Matthews, Founder and Executive Chair, CNM LLP.

“CNM was built by a hard-working team of professionals who wanted to create a business where our professionals are prioritized over financial outcomes,” says Nathan Matthews, Founder and Executive Chair, CNM LLP. “People, relationships, and quality have always been the anchors of our core values. We’ve maintained that reputation for 20 years in a meaningful way that comes through in our culture, our work, and how we treat our people and clients.”

CNM’s first employee, Beatrice Leong, was promoted to Partner in 2014, the same year the firm’s IT SOX service line was created, and its Orange County office opened. “I started at CNM when it was a newly formed company, and it’s been an honor to be a part of the journey,” says Beatrice. “Over the last 20 years, I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside incredibly talented and dedicated colleagues. CNM has been such an important part of my professional growth, and I’m thankful to work in an environment that’s been so supportive and uplifting.”

By 2016, CNM grew to 50 full-time professionals, promoting Sanjay Sheth, who joined the firm in 2006 as a Senior Associate, to Partner. Over the next seven years, CNM’s growth accelerated as the company doubled in revenue and size and created the Internal Audit service line. In 2019, the company expanded its national footprint with new offices in San Diego and New York, and the Cybersecurity service line was created. In 2022, Sanjay was promoted to Managing Partner and continues leading the firm to unprecedented growth and success today. In 2023, CNM appointed its first ever President, Bill Strong, and reached yet another major milestone in the company’s 20-year history with its first international office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, led by Beatrice.

CNM currently has five offices in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, New York City, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and six areas of practice, plus a Professional Practice Group. With a global workforce of over 200 professionals, including 12 partners, CNM is best known for its areas of service in accounting & transaction, internal audit, SOX, business transformation, data & analytics, process automation, and cybersecurity & privacy.

Over the last 20 years, CNM has remained strongly committed to excellence and fostering a people-centric culture, which has led to several awards, including by Fortune as a Great Place to Work-Certified™ company since 2018, one of the “Best Places to Work” by the Orange County Business Journal for four consecutive years, and one of the top 30 Accounting and Business Advisory Firms in Los Angeles County by the LA Times B2B.

“I’ve witnessed CNM’s growth firsthand, and we have always kept sight of the pillars that make this company so well-respected,” says Sanjay. “We’ve never been stronger as a company, and I’m excited for what’s to come as we continue to evolve.”

Nathan adds, “CNM is grateful to everyone who has been a part of this journey, from the people who helped get this company off the ground 20 years ago, to the 200+ professionals today who have all been pivotal to CNM’s success. We would not be where we are today without the people and the clients who bring meaning to our work. People, relationships, and quality will continue to be the driving force as CNM looks ahead to the next 20 years.”
