Michael Bernstein

Managing Director


Accounting and Finance


13 Years of Experience


BA, English

Michael has been recruiting accounting and finance professionals in the Greater New York City area since he graduated from the University of Rochester in 2005. In his first position, which lasted from 2005 to 2008, his client focus was on the Wall Street community. After the financial industry crash, he expanded his client base and industry focus to include Real Estate/Construction, Not for Profit, Manufacturing/Consumer Products, Hedge Fund/Private Equity, Media/Advertising, Healthcare, and Insurance among many others. Since Michael joined Phyton in 2012 to help start up the accounting and finance recruiting practice, he and his team have placed accounting and finance professionals at all levels from Bookkeeper to CFO in start-up, small/medium sized, and fortune 500 businesses.

Mike was born in the Tampa area but only lived there for about a year. He was raised in Summit, NJ and currently resides in Fanwood, NJ. He is a long-suffering fan of the Buffalo Bills and New York Mets and releases his frustration from that by training in Muay Thai kickboxing.
