SEIA Appoints Ahmed Hassanein, CPA, MBA as Chief Financial Officer

Hassanein joins SEIA to support development and growth throughout the firm.

LOS ANGELES, CA, MARCH 14, 2023 – Signature Estate & Investment Advisors (SEIA) today announced Ahmed Hassanein, CPA, MBA, joins the firm as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Hassanein is based in SEIA’s Century City, CA headquarters and takes over as CFO immediately.

Previously Gary Liska MS, CFP®, AIF®, CMFC®, AAMS®, a founding partner and active financial advisor, was responsible for the firm’s CFO duties. As SEIA continues to grow and develop business lines, the need for a full-time appointee became clear. As SEIA consolidates its business lines under a single holding company, Hassanein will be responsible for the increased requirements for financial reporting, regulatory filings, and further position the company for scalable growth.

“Ahmed brings the precise experience needed to help SEIA reach the next stage of its growth trajectory. He’s helped businesses prepare to scale by building teams and developing processes and systems,” says Gary Liska. “I couldn’t hand the reins to a more qualified person. I’m looking forward to turning my full focus to my practice and growing alongside the rest of the firm.”

“I’m excited to bring my experience and expertise to SEIA, positioning the firm for exponential growth through M&A and organic development,” says Ahmed. “SEIA is already aligned for success. I’m looking forward to building a team to drive process improvement, setting it up to be a best-in-class RIA.”

Ahmed has nearly three decades of experience in accounting, financial reporting, and leadership. Over the last 10 years, Ahmed served as Chief Accounting Officer for two-separate PE-backed wealth management start-up firms, where he built teams, implemented systems, improved processes, and professionalized the accounting function, setting up the businesses for growth and scale.
