Art Bowman Leaves Bowman's Accounting Report

Accounting industry veteran Art Bowman has unexpectedly left his job as head of Bowman's Accounting Report, a respected accounting industry newsletter which he founded in 1987.

Martha Sawyer, publisher of Bowmans Accounting Report, announced Bowman's departure last week, indicated that the publication had fallen months behind schedule and that they were very concerned about getting it back on track. She indicated that he was leaving "to pursue other interests."

"We just had some disagreements about what I should be doing and how I should be doing it," Art Bowman was quoted in The Washington Post. "There are things I want to do that I was restricted from doing," he said, and said he felt "unleashed."

Art Bowman has been actively pursuing speaking and consulting opportunities in the accounting profession with the full knowledge and approval of the publisher. "I'm just looking to expand in my consulting role and as an analyst in the profession," Bowman told WebCPA, who first published the news. "I was doing the same thing I'd been doing for 23 years. And I have some other ideas I'd like to work on."

No indication was given as to who initiated Mr. Bowman's departure or whether or not there was an option for him to continue in his role at Bowman's Accounting Report.

The publication will continue under the Bowman name, and the staff is working diligently to get current on the publication.
