In his new role, Moreau will be responsible for accounting operations and financial reporting as he leads the firm’s accounting, business finance, financial planning and analysis, and compliance efforts. Further, he will work strategically with firm leadership on the overall long-term financial planning and analysis of the firm, as it continues to grow in both the Florida and national legal markets.
“We are thrilled that Randy is joining our leadership team as our Chief Accounting Officer,” said Heath S.

Before joining Kelley Kronenberg, he worked for one of the nation’s leading consultancy boutiques providing financial leadership assistance to large businesses on the development and measurement of business operations, financial forecasting and the implementation of internal controls and best practices. Prior to that, he served as the Chief Financial Officer for another high-profile Florida law firm.
“Randy’s acquisition is another building block in our firm’s journey to stay ahead of the curve as an organization that is focused on strategy, innovation, and vital strategic initiatives that better serve our people and our clients,” said Eskalyo. “His broad finance and accounting experience and deep understanding of our business requirements position him well for success at Kelley Kronenberg.”
