The New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJCPA) has named Aiysha Johnson its next CEO and executive director. She will replace Ralph Albert Thomas, who is retiring on June 30 after more than 23 years leading the organization.
Johnson has more than 20 years of experience working for non-profits, including professional and trade associations, building strategic partnerships and developing member value strategies. Most recently, she was executive director of the Americas Region at BKR International, where she oversaw the implementation of all strategic efforts for accounting and business advisory member firms in the U.S., Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean.
“[Aiysha] is well-versed in the accounting profession globally and in New Jersey,” says NJCPA president Kathleen Powers. “She is knowledgeable about how CPAs can strengthen their organizations and personal brands.”
