NJCPA Magazine Looks Back at Past 30 Under 30 List Winners

A Look at Partner, Eddie Rivera, Then and Now

This article originally appeared in the Spring 2021 issue of New Jersey CPA Magazine and has been reprinted with permission of the New Jersey Society of CPAs,

Ten years ago, the New Jersey CPA Magazine named a group of young NJCPA members to the inaugural “30 Under 30” list in recognition of their leadership, success, and drive. Partner Eddie Rivera was honored on this list, and New Jersey CPA Magazine recently checked in with him to see what he's been up to since 2011.

Eddie’s first professional position was a job posting he replied to in the NJCPA JobBank. From there, he never looked back. With support from his wife, Eddie built an internal tax department from the ground up and assisted in the rebuild of the accounting department at one of the largest private real estate companies in the New York metro area. He also made partner at the age of 33. Understanding psychology and communicating effectively are important skills he wishes he learned earlier.
