Litigation Specialist Named to top Spot at CALCPA

The California Society of CPAs has named Donald L. Gursey president of the organization.

A Los Angeles CPA with the firm of Gursey, Schneider & Co., LLP, he has conducted audits of companies in the insurance and entertainment industries, and has been appointed by the U.S. District Court in Federal bankruptcy proceedings.

'Don Gursey's knowledge of the accounting and legal professions in California, his vast network of CPA colleagues and other professionals, combined with his proven ability to lead will serve the profession well in
what is sure to be a year of tremendous change and transition,' says Susan Waters, executive director.

Gursey is a founding member and past chairman of the Committee on Litigation Services. Outside the Society, he teaches for the University of Southern California's Advanced Professional Program on Basic Family Law Practice, as well as the California Trial Lawyers Association and State Bar Convention programs.

Gursey's agenda for the year includes attracting more young
people to the profession.

'I'm honored to be able to serve the Society president, and I hope that during my term, I'll be able to interest more students in becoming CPAs,' says Gursey. 'I also am vitally interested in making the CPA profession more inclusive and in increasing the diversity of the CPA ranks to reflect more closely the diversity of the population of California.'
