Ben Cotlar

Senior Audit Manager

Dependable and sincere, Ben has a passion for providing top-notch audit services to his clients in several industries including manufacturing and distribution. Always willing to roll up his sleeves, Ben’s clients appreciate his devotion, quick responses and goal-oriented approach for a smooth audit completion.  

Ben started as an intern in 2012 and joined Weinstein Spira full-time in 2013 as a part of the firm’s audit-tax rotation program. Getting a taste of both sides of the firm, he chose to move forward with a focus in auditing in 2014. In addition to serving clients, Ben develops new staff accountants with education on technical matters and overall professional development. 

A fan of the outdoors, Ben, his wife, Miriam, and their five boys enjoy spending time at their local park, climbing trees and playing tennis. To add to his well-rounded interests, he also plays piano most days after work and on the weekends.
