Senior Managing Director – Accounting/Finance

As Senior Managing Director of The Execu|Search Group’s Accounting/Finance division, Peter Tegano is responsible for overseeing the firm’s Accounting/Finance staffing efforts with Long Island-based clients and candidates. Peter began his career at KPMG and earned his CPA while auditing clients in the broker-dealer and alternative investments industries, and after transitioning into the private equity sector, joined The Execu|Search Group in 2011 to solidify the firm’s presence in the Long Island market. Since then, he has successfully built a team dedicated to servicing Long Island’s top employers and candidates.

Peter’s approach to recruiting is founded on building long-term relationships while always maintaining an “ethics first” mentality. “It is important for my clients and candidates to trust me implicitly with their job search in order to build strong, mutually beneficial partnerships over time,” he says of his strategies. As a Long Island native, he brings an extra level of regional expertise to all his staffing projects.

Peter holds a BS in Psychology from SUNY at Old Westbury and an MBA from CUNY Baruch College with a concentration in Accounting. An avid ice hockey fan, concert goer and poker enthusiast, Peter resides on Long Island where he enjoys spending family time with his wife and two children.
