AICPA Names Former Andersen Partner Director of Academic & Career Development

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) on Monday named Denis R. Reigle Director of Academic and Career Development. He will join the AICPA in January 2007, working in the AICPA’s Durham, North Carolina, office.


“We are delighted to have Denny join us,” Barry C. Melancon, President and CEO of the AICPA, said in a prepared statement. “He is held in high esteem in the accounting profession and has the breadth of experience and expertise to lead the AICPA’s academic and career development initiatives. Among our highest priorities are recruiting and retaining talented people into the profession and ensuring the availability of qualified accounting faculty. In addition, Denny’s team will lead our AICPA Foundation, diversity, and work-life programs.”

Reigle currently serves as a part-time career coach for students in the Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program at Northwestern University’s J.L. Kellogg School of Management. Previously Managing Partner, Partner Matters and Human Resources-Americas at Arthur Andersen LLP, Reigle was responsible for Andersen’s recruiting and university relations effort for more than a decade, before taking early retirement in August 2001.

In addition, Reigle has volunteered extensively within the accounting profession, including serving as President of Beta Alpha Psi, as Vice President (Practice) of the American Accounting Association, as a board member of the Federation of Schools of Accountancy, as a member of the AICPA Academic and Career Development Executive Committee, and as a member of several committees of the AACSB-International.

He is also a member of the board of trustees of numerous organizations, including the Graduate Management Admission Council, where he is Chairman; the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation; and the Wake Forest Calloway School Board of Visitors, as well as former Board Chairman of AIESEC-US, Inc., which is an international work exchange organization dedicated to increasing cultural understanding. He was also an honorary member of the National Council of INROADS, INC., a not-for-profit career development organization for minority students. He is currently a member of the Dominican University School of Business Board of Advisors.

Reigle was the first corporate member to be inducted into the National Association of Colleges & Employers’ Academy of NACE Fellows. He was twice honored with the Federation of Schools of Accountancy Practitioner Service Award in recognition of his efforts on behalf of post-baccalaureate accounting education.
