UHY Advisors announces promotion of Heather Bearfield

UHY TAAS professionals offer decades of experience from both an IT and industry standpoint to help companies improve their operations. The top-level benefit is obviously cost savings, but improved IT operations also result in better regulatory compliance, less downtime, and greater internal client satisfaction.
Taking an "audit" approach, UHY analyzes the current system and recommends improvements. UHY also monitors progress and can quantify the results in real dollars.
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.
