Michael PlattCongratulations to AccountingWEB President Michael Platt, named this year as one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in the Accounting Profession, according to the annual study released by Accounting Today.

"It's an honor to be included on the Top 100 list among so many friends and colleagues. All of us are committed to ensuring that the profession thrives in the coming years, and I'm delighted to be in a position to help move it towards continued success, " says Platt.

Platt's background in the accounting profession includes fifteen years of servicing mid-sized CPA firms as Vice President and President of two North American accounting firm networks - Associated Accounting Firms International and Moore Stephens North America. It was there that the foundation was built for understanding the challenges and opportunities facing CPA firms today.
