Carr, Riggs & Ingram announces appointments

Carr, Riggs & Ingram (CRI) has recently announced the appointment of two of their partners to distinguished accounting boards.

Harold L. Monk, Jr., CPA, CFE, has been re-appointed to the Advisory Council on Government Auditing Standards, and M. Chad Singletary, CPA, has been appointed to the Alabama State Board of Accountancy.

The Advisory Council on Government Auditing Standards provides guidance to the Comptroller General to provide a framework to auditors so their work leads to improved government management, decision making, oversight, and accountability. Monk, partner-in-charge of the CRI’s Gainesville office, is a nationally recognized expert on accounting and auditing standards and has diligently served the council since 2002.

Active professionally, he is a former member of the board of directors of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and previously served as a member of the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants (FICPA) Board of Governors. A previous adjunct auditing instructor for the University of Florida's School of Accounting, Monk has published articles in the Florida Accounting News, the CPA Journal, and the Journal of Accountancy while Accounting Today named him one of the 100 most influential people in accounting for four years.

Simultaneously, the Governor has appointed – and the Alabama Senate has confirmed – new members to the Alabama State Board of Accountancy, the regulatory body governing CPAs in Alabama, including M. Chad Singletary, CPA and CRI partner in the Montgomery office. With more than 17 years of experience, his career has focused on directing auditing, accounting, regulatory compliance, consulting, and taxation engagements for various organizations primarily in the insurance and tax exempt sectors. Singletary’s experience includes work in insurance industry regulatory compliance and tax exempt organization OMB A-133 audits. He currently serves as a member of CRI’s Quality Control Committee and as a board member for the Alabama Council of Association Executives.

"Carr, Riggs & Ingram is recognized throughout the Southeast as an accounting industry leader, and both Harold and Chad embody the level of expertise and innovation for which our firm has become known,” according to Managing Partner William H. Carr, CPA. “These leadership roles are mutually beneficial as Harold and Chad not only offer constructive guidance and knowledge to these organizations, but they also provide CRI with a global accounting perspective as we continue our trendsetter pace as one of the fastest growing firms in the nation.”
