Featured Graduate

Michael Fanelli

In 2014, Michael Fanelli was promoted to partner at McGladrey, LLP. “I am now an owner in the company,” he explains. “I lead merger and acquisition due diligence projects, key companywide initiatives, people management, all as a partner in the fifth largest accounting, tax and consulting firm in the US.”

Fanelli is also one of the youngest partners of the firm. “You have to deliver quality work and interface well with clients, develop team members and promote yourself, too, as well as management taking notice of you... It’s really a people business, the higher you go.”

In part, Fanelli credits Herkimer College for his success today. “With hard work and dedication, you can get to where you want to be quickly.”
