Kenneth R. Maier
Founding Partner, Certified Public Accountant

“Success is all about a tireless commitment to our clients, standing shoulder to shoulder with our clients to help them grow their business.”

Ken Maier, the founding partner of M Group, started the business with one simple philosophy…working hand in hand, and becoming a partner with the clients, will have a direct impact on results. At M Group, it’s all about working together for success.

From the day Ken started the business, to his first hire, to the more than 70 professionals who make up M Group today, the focus has always been on one thing – helping the clients achieve significant and sustained growth. Energy, integrity, creative thinking and a relentless commitment to the client…these are the guiding principles Ken has used to build his team at M Group, and the successful and consistent formula he’s used in helping his clients achieve their goals.

Today, under Ken’s leadership and direction, M Group has become one of the largest independent financial service firms in the tri-state area. With locations in Westchester County and Manhattan, the firm offers a wide range of financial and business management services through M Group Consulting LLC, formerly known as M4 Consultants. We service our clients Auditing and Taxation needs through Maier Markey & Justic LLP.

Ken, a Certified Public Accountant, brings more than 30 years of experience to his clients. In addition to setting the strategy and direction for M Group, Ken specializes in building successful businesses. With a focus on financial management, creativity and an entrepreneurial spirit, Ken has built a number of highly successful start-up ventures, and has led the financial turnaround for several other companies. Ken’s main focus areas are in the Healthcare and Not-for-Profit sectors, where he provides his clients with a wide range of services, including financial management, advisory services, strategic planning, dialysis facility management and physician practice management. Ken is also the outsourced CFO for a number of Healthcare clients, ranging in size from 50 to 300 employees.

Ken spent the first five years of his career at the Big 4 accounting firm of Ernst & Young, where he focused on auditing and then became assistant director of Human Resources. Ken also served as the assistant controller for Cushman & Wakefield, and spent three years at a New York City CPA firm. With these combined experiences, Ken wanted to offer his clients the horsepower of the large shops with the hands on approach of a more intimate boutique. So, in 1985 Ken started a solo practice that eventually became M Group.

Ken is a graduate of the University of Delaware, and holds undergraduate degrees in both Economics and Accounting. He attended the Stern School of Business at New York University for a Masters of Business Administration in Taxation.
