Frank is relied upon by his clients to help them fit the pieces of their financial management together into a coherent “big picture,” an ability that goes back to his youth. His first job was at a coin shop owned by his aunt and uncle when he was 15. He enjoyed helping collectors find missing pieces to complete their collections, as well as learning how to grade and buy coins.
Frank joined G.T. Reilly in 1980 after graduating from Stonehill College in Easton, MA, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration/Accounting.
He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, as well as the Peer Review Acceptance Board of the Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants, and the Accounting & Auditing Committee and the Manufacturing & Distribution Special Interest Group of Moore Stephens North America.
He also devotes his time locally as treasurer of the Quincy Rotary Club, as a member of the Friends of Christopher Columbus Park and Friends of North End Library, and as a coach for South Boston Softball.
In his spare time, Frank enjoys family time, cooking, sports, fine dining and wine, theater and concerts. He lives in the North End of Boston with his wife and daughter.
