WANADA wishes Pete Reilly all the best as he completes his 42nd year at Councilor, Buchanan & Mitchell (CBM) on his way to retirement. Pete served as president and managing partner of the accounting and advisory firm from 2014 through 2020 before becoming board chairman in 2021. He will continue to serve CBM and its clients as a senior advisor starting in 2022.
During his career, Pete served an important role for numerous dealerships within WANADA’s member network, delivering valuation and consulting services to keep business going strong. He also worked alongside CBM partners Tom O’Neil and Jim Tortorella who were instrumental in helping countless dealerships through complex ownership transitions. Pete’s successor as president and managing partner, Dan Weaver, has been the long-time partner in charge of WANADA’s audit.
Pete also continues to serve on WANADA’s events committee. He has been a well-known, gregarious figure at our social outings. As an avid golfer, he can be counted on to participate in the annual WANADA Open and he is usually chatting up other participants at the WANADA annual meeting.
Pete’s accounting career has, finally, been a whirlwind of civic and community engagement including board and advisory positions for Bishop Ireton High School, The Belle Haven Country Club, the Bank of Georgetown and the Country Club Swimming & Diving Association. Pete is a passionate swimmer who participated 21 times in the 4.4-mile Great Chesapeake Bay Swim. He also coached basketball at St. Mary’s School of Alexandria.
