AKMCPA Team

Stuart J. Hammer, MBA, CPA (Retired)

I work to be a mentor to and financial guide for my clients. I’m here to make life easier for them, so they don’t have to worry about the financial and business aspects of their lives.

Stuart has been developing his expertise in business management ever since he ran his grandfather’s variety store as an 11-year-old. His first responsibility was the toy department, where his focus was not what he wanted to play with, but what was likely to sell. Stuart has played that early business acumen into a 30+ year career as a professional business manager and accountant. Over that time he has worked with entertainers, movie producers, artists and high net worth individuals, as well as technology startups and real estate firms.

Stuart has been a lecturer for Columbia University’s prestigious technical seminars, for the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants’ Foundation for Accounting Education, and for numerous other organizations in the greater New York region. He was a contributor to one of the pioneering books on condo/coop conversion, The Condo & Coop Book: A Game Plan for Winning the Condo/Co-op Conversion Battle (Prentice Hall, 1983).

Prior to joining Adelman Katz & Mond, Stuart led his own firms: S.J. Hammer and Company, CPAs, and Hammer Management Company, Ltd. Stuart plays tennis and enjoys supporting ballet and the arts. He lives in Edgewater, New Jersey, with his wife, Judy.
