"We have experienced tremendous growth over the past several years, and Joe's talent and experience will help tackle the increasing needs of the country's CPAs and put more structure to our efforts."
Poye, 43, will manage a team of eight sales professionals responsible for selling CPA2Biz's suite of Trusted Business Advisor Solutions and AICPA Onsite Training to firms and CPAs in government and businesses and industry nationwide. He will continue to build on the sales distribution model already in place with state CPA societies.

Before LexisNexis, Poye held sales management positions at Global Crossing and MCI Communications Corporation.
Over 20,000 CPA firms today use one or more solutions from CPA2Biz's Trusted Business AdvisorSM platform, which help firms build more profitable client practices and stronger client relationships.
"CPA2Biz offers market leading solutions to tens of thousands of CPA firms," said Poye. "My goal is to help build on the company's already strong reputation as the CPA's trusted business partner by helping firms deploy best-in-class firm solutions."
With Poye's hiring, CPA2Biz has added responsibility for selling AICPA Onsite Training. The new structure has been put in place to capitalize on the many synergies that exist with CPA2Biz's firm solutions sales activities and to better meet the needs of state societies and AICPA and state society members.
