“Demonstrating interest and care for clients goes a long way in this profession. It helps to not only build their trust but to also develop long-lasting relationships. I have learned that each individual client wants to feel as though they are my only client, which is what I strive to do.”
Al joined Global Tax Management, Inc. (GTM) in 2006. He is a director in the firm’s Harrisburg area office where he primarily serves multinational corporations in the manufacturing and retail industries. Al specializes in ASC 740 and FIN 48 consulting, and structuring international operations.
Al has over 25 years of experience in the corporate tax and audit fields, enabling him to provide sound, quality advice to his clients. He has often assisted clients with ASC 740 reporting under tight deadlines, FIN 48 adoptions, and remediation of earnings and profit pools.

Prior to joining GTM, Al served as tax director at Fortune 500 Company, York International Corp., where he worked for seven years. He previously spent five years at MBNA America Bank where he was responsible for international tax and IRS audits.
