2005 Business & Industry Hall of Fame Calls for Nominations

Ajilon Financial and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants launched the search for nominees to the Business & Industry Hall of Fame on Monday. Winners will be announced at the AICPA’s Fall Business & Industry Financial Executive Forum.

The AICPA Business & Industry Hall of Fame, now in its 7th consecutive year, honors CPAs who demonstrate strong business ethics, lead by example and commitment, provide insight and vision using knowledge of broad business issues and inspire and motivate others to excellence. Candidates understand the business beyond the numbers, effectively managing expectations within their organizations to meet today’s dynamic market conditions.

“We’re extremely excited to be partnering with Ajilon Finance to help promote this prestigious award,” CPA and AICPA vice president John F. Morrow said in a written statement. “We’re encouraging individuals to nominate their bosses and colleagues that have proven to be skilled practitioners and that embody the core characteristics of today’s CPA.”
