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.

Candidates understand the business beyond the numbers, effectively managing expectations within their organizations to meet today’s dynamic market conditions.
