Our People

It seems fitting that a company advising CPAs and CPA firms on success strategies would have a CPA at the helm.  When you work with RF Resources, you’ll work one-on-one with founder and fellow CPA Robert Fligel.  Fligel, along with a handpicked team of advisors, brings decades of professional accounting experience to the table.  This in-depth industry knowledge coupled with an exclusive focus on the NY Metro market allow for a first-rate standard of service that is truly unique.

Robert Fligel, Founder

Robert Fligel has experienced accounting from a multitude of angles.  A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

become an Audit Manager at a Fortune 500 firm, associate at a national search and recruiting firm
 and Director of Human Resources for a “Big 4” accounting firm.
  In his first go-round at entrepreneurship, Robert co-founded what would become one of New York’s largest and most successful executive search firms.  In 2004, he launched RF Resources.  He is an active member in the New York State Society of CPAs, the National Conference of CPA Practitioners and other professional organizations.
