SEC Names 2 Professional Accounting Fellows
Timothy M. Kviz and Joseph B. Ucuzoglu, have been named preofessional accounting fellows by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) Office of the Chief Accountant. Both will serve two year terms beginning in June 2005.
“This is an exciting time to join the Securities and Exchange Commission and, in particular, the Office of the Chief Accountant. The candidates went through a highly competitive process, and the quality of the individuals who applied for these positions speaks volumes about the importance of our role as the investor’s advocate. Time and Joe are two highly skilled and talented individuals, and their experience and knowledge will be invaluable,” Chief Accountant Donald T. Nicolaisen said in a written statement.
The new accounting fellows will be studying and developing rule proposals under the federal securities laws, consulting on accounting and reporting matters and acting as liaisons to professional accounting and auditing bodies charged with setting professional standards.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
