AICPA Standing Ovation Honors Chris Miller of SteelGate Advisors™ for Outstanding Accomplishments in 2016 in Forensic Accounting and Business Valuation.
The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) Standing Ovation program has recognized 25 CPAs age 40 and under for their contributions to the areas of forensic accounting and business valuation. These talented young CPAs were honored at the AICPA 2016 Forensic & Valuation Services (FVS) Conference in Nashville.
The Standing Ovation program annually recognizes young CPAs who exhibit outstanding professional achievement in specialization areas, such as forensic accounting and business valuation services. Requirements for nomination to the Standing Ovation program for the FVS specialty area include maintaining an active CPA license, being an AICPA member in good standing, and holding either a Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) or Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) specialty credential. Nominees must be 40 years old or younger.
“The young professionals honored this year have demonstrated significant accomplishments in the areas of forensic accounting and business valuation,” said Jeannette Koger, CPA, CGMA, AICPA’s vice president of member specialization and credentialing. “The AICPA’s Standing Ovation program was developed to identify those CPAs who are rising stars in the accounting profession, particularly in their area of specialization.”
