The governing council of the AICPA has elected Bill Pirolli as the organization’s new chairperson. Pirolli, a partner at Warwick, R.I.-based DiSanto Priest & Co. with more than 40 years of experience in public accounting, succeeds outgoing chair Tracey Golden in the volunteer post.
“During the extraordinary challenges of the past year, we’ve seen first-hand how the profession has helped small businesses survive and adapt; I look forward to empowering all firms to achieve success in their field and equip them with the tools they need to succeed,” says Pirolli. “Above all, I’m excited to forge relationships with fellow CPAs on the national and global level to create a renewed sense of community and connection in the field. As my dad always said, ‘We’re in the people business, not the numbers business.'”
