James Zielinski

Jim has been a CPA since 1978, starting with Arthur Andersen in Atlanta in 1976, moving to Rochester in 1978, and joining Bonadio in 1989. He worked with various clients and served as the head of the Commercial team until just before retirement. Jim retired as a partner in 2016 and continues working part-time with clients and the firm’s Professional Excellence division.

Jim’s hobbies include biking, skiing, playing golf (less and less), and woodworking. He and his wife, Karen, take ballroom dancing lessons and dance whenever the opportunity presents itself. He also supports many of Karen’s volunteer activities, primarily through physical labor. They have two sons, who lived one block apart from each other in Manhattan until recently. His favorite Bonadio memories are the colleagues and clients who have become lifelong friends.
