PROMINENT CPA AND ADVISORY FIRM ARTHUR BELL ANNOUNCES NEWLY CREATED CHAIRMAN POSITION AND APPOINTMENT OF NEW MANAGING MEMBER

  • Founder Arthur F. Bell, Jr., CPA, Assumes New Role as Chairman

Corey A. McLaughlin, CPA, Promoted to Managing Member

Arthur Bell, a leading CPA and advisory firm dedicated to servicing the alternative investment industry, entrepreneurs, family offices, and high net worth individuals, today announced significant senior management changes. Arthur F. Bell Jr., the company’s namesake, has assumed the newly created role of Chairman. Member, Corey A. McLaughlin, has now been elevated to the senior leadership role of Managing Member.

Starting as a sole proprietor in 1974, Arthur F. Bell Jr. consulted on accounting matters dealing with commodities and worked with some of the earliest commodity trading advisors (CTAs) and commodity pool operators (CPOs), handling their accounting, tax, performance records, and audit needs. As the alternative investment industry began to evolve, Mr. Bell assisted with the formation of the industry’s leading trade organization, the Managed Funds Association (MFA), and he worked with the government in the formation of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), and later with the National Futures Association (NFA). Under his leadership the firm has grown simultaneously with the alternative investment industry, and today serves a global client base that includes CTAs, CPOs, hedge funds, private equity, investment advisers, principals, family offices, and sophisticated investors.

“I have been privileged to work alongside Corey McLaughlin for the past 18 years. During that time Corey has shined as a part of our Executive Committee, and he has successfully managed firm wide decisions and strategy for the past several years. His dedication to our clients, our team, and the industry at large is exceptional, and I am thrilled to be passing the baton to his very capable hands,” said Arthur Bell.

“I am grateful to have been mentored by a true industry luminary, Arthur Bell, and it is an honor to be trusted to build upon the solid foundation he has created. In the years ahead our firm will continue to grow by providing our clients and investors with the peace of mind that results from our commitment to delivering exceptional service and astute counsel to empower their personal, professional, and profitable growth,” said Corey McLaughlin.

In his new role as Chairman, Arthur Bell will continue to actively work on key client matters and to be involved in business development initiatives. Mr. Bell has spent most of his career involved in the commodities and hedge fund industry as a regulatory, tax, audit, and business advisor. He is a frequent speaker at conferences and has excelled in current and prior leadership roles at prominent organizations, including the MFA and the CFTC’s Global Markets Advisory Committee. A graduate of Johns Hopkins University and a licensed CPA in Maryland, Mr. Bell is also on the Board of Directors of The Hippodrome Foundation, the Board of Trustees for Stevenson University, and the Board of Directors of the National Corvette Museum’s Motor Sports Park.

As the new Managing Member, Corey McLaughlin is now responsible for management of Arthur Bell and the execution of the vision and strategy that will continue the firm’s strategic growth and innovation into the future. He joined Arthur Bell in 1998, and has provided accounting, auditing, investors’ representative, attestation, and consulting services to a variety of entities including commodity pools, hedge funds, CTAs, investment advisers, broker-dealers, and others. He has also served as the Member-in-Charge of the firm’s Audit & Assurance department with oversight of the Advisory practice, and was key in the formation and growth of the firm’s Ireland office, Arthur Bell Limited. Mr. McLaughlin is currently the treasurer of the Mid-Atlantic Hedge Fund Association and a member of the Towson University Accounting Advisory Board. He is a sought after speaker at industry conferences, and has authored several articles for publications drawing upon his expertise as a leader in the alternative investment industry. He graduated from Towson University with a B.S. in Accounting and is a CPA licensed to practice in several states. Mr. McLaughlin is also a member of MACPA and AICPA.
