Each year, CPA Practice Advisor recognizes professionals who are under 40, and are emerging as the future leaders in the profession, or those leading the development of technology that serves the profession.
The 40 Under 40 Awards spotlight the top practicing public accountants, educators and thought leaders who are leading their profession by visibly and incrementally changing the accounting profession through their exemplary leadership, their innovative thinking, their collaborative efforts to provide unity to the profession across the generations, and their community outreach which extends the visibility of the profession outside the workplace.
The 20 Under 40 Vendor Superstars program similarly honors those who are leading the way in developing the constantly evolving technology and firm processes that allow practitioners to be more productive, efficient and profitable, as they build practices that will endure and thrive.
“We are fortunate to be surrounded by so many young professionals who are sharing their ideas, skills, and enthusiasm with the goal of making the accounting profession a better place. Change is occurring rapidly in our profession and this year’s award winners are embracing and welcoming the changes,” said Editor-in-Chief Gail Perry, CPA. “They are strong, dedicated, spirited leaders and we are proud to recognize these professionals as the 2018 ’40 Under 40 in the Accounting Profession’ and the ’20 Under 40 Vendor Superstars.’ “
This year’s 40 Under 40 Honorees will meet in Indianapolis October 16-18 for round table discussions exploring emerging trends and issues that will affect the profession in the coming years.
