Thompson Coburn recently named Matt Finke as its new Chief Financial Officer, following the retirement of Mary Ann Hallemann, who served as CFO for nearly 40 years. Matt was previously a partner at RubinBrown LLP, one of the leading accounting and professional consulting firms in the nation.
“It’s an honor to join Thompson Coburn as the new CFO,” Matt said. “I admire the Firm’s values and its commitment to clients, employees and the community, and will continue to keep those values at the core of our work while leading our financial operations.”
As the new Chief Financial Officer, Matt oversees all accounting, billing and tax work for Thompson Coburn, and leads the 30-member financial team that plays a key role in the Firm’s accounting, taxes and budgeting, as well as mergers and expansions.
“Matt’s unique background and commitment to excellence will help ensure the future growth of our Firm,” said Chairman Tom Minogue. “Matt has served as a talented and highly knowledgeable outside consultant to us for several years, and will do an outstanding job of leading our business office and continuing its exemplary service to our Firm, our attorneys and our clients. We’re lucky to have such a sharp financial mind join our team.”
Before joining Thompson Coburn, Matt worked for more than a decade as a CPA and business consultant with RubinBrown. As former Partner-in-Charge of RubinBrown’s Law Firm Services Group, Matt provided consulting services to some of the region’s largest firms — including Thompson Coburn.
Matt earned a B.S. in Accounting and a Master of Accounting degree from Truman State University. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Missouri Society of Certified Public Accountants and a business partner of the Gateway Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators.
