The governing council of the AICPA has elected Tracey Golden as the organization’s new chairperson. Golden, an audit partner at Deloitte, succeeds outgoing chair Bill Reeb in the volunteer post, having served for the past year as vice chair.
“We are truly living disruption – not incremental change but a radical break from the familiar,” says Golden. “Our profession has a crucial role to play in helping navigate this disruption. We are here to help businesses and individuals get through these tough times, learn from them and grow. In an uncertain world, CPAs are needed now more than ever as trusted advisors who can lead a path forward.”
At the same virtual meeting, Bill Pirolli, a partner at Warwick, R.I.-based DiSanto Priest & Co., was elected vice chair of the organization.
“I am looking forward to working with the leadership of the AICPA and CIMA, and all of our members and students, as we reimagine what our profession, businesses and lives will look like in the near future and beyond,” Pirolli says. “Never have our roles as trusted advisors been more critical.”
