Wayne Day, CPA, CIRA, CVA, CGMA, MBA

Partner | wday@dayseckler.com | vCard

“As a CPA and professional service provider, providing my clients with proactive service is my top priority. I strive to give my clients what they need, before they need it and before they even think of it.”

As a partner at Day Seckler, Wayne provides audit services to clients in the manufacturing, distribution and horticultural industries. He is known as the firm’s bankruptcy/troubled company expert. He has assisted numerous clients with bankruptcy and restructuring, including those in the steel, manufacturing, healthcare, distribution, energy and professional services industries. He also has significant experience with assisting clients in mergers, sales and acquisitions of companies. In addition to his client responsibilities, Wayne is in charge of managing the practice and business development.

Over the course of his career, Wayne has worked at Shearson Lehman, Zolfo Cooper and Policano & Manzo. Prior to creating Day Seckler with his two partners, Wayne was a partner at a regional accounting firm for 15 years. During this time, he also served as a partner at CCV Restructuring. Wayne began his professional career in 1981 at PriceWaterhouseCoopers.

With over 30 years of experience, Wayne is recognized as an authority on bankruptcy, troubled companies, and mergers and acquisitions. In particular, he was the Chief Restructuring Officer for a steel manufacturing and distribution business. Wayne was responsible for closing plants, laying off and downsizing the business, and selling the company’s assets.

Wayne attributes much of his success to his willingness to put in the extra hours, confidence in his ability to solve his clients’ problems and the fear of failure. Additionally, he has a strong belief in that you have to outwork the competition if you want to be successful.

Wayne grew up in the Finger Lakes region of New York and now lives with his wife, Pam, and son, Alex, on the lake in Salisbury Mills. He enjoys the serenity of the lake and the wildlife that frequent it.
