CPA Practice Advisor Announces 2015 "40 Under 40" Accounting Professionals

The accounting profession is as dynamic and vital to the success of America’s small businesses as ever, which is why CPA Practice Advisor’s 40 Under 40 program recognizes professionals who are helping lead the profession into the future.

This year’s 40 Under 40 honorees are among the best and brightest talent in the accounting profession. They are all active in the professional community, as well as in their local communities, where many are small business owners and employers. Many are also frequently seen at industry trade shows, such as AICPA PS/Tech and state CPA society events, giving seminars or participating in round table discussions on evolving practices and technologies.

These are the voices of today that are shaping the profession of tomorrow.
