CPAs address inter-generational challenges and opportunities.
Every generation has its own view on what works best in today's environment, according to a multi-generational group of CPAs at a panel discussion hosted by the Accountants Club of America. Rick Telberg, president and CEO of Bay Street Group and of CPA Trendlines Research, moderated the panel discussion. “As professions go, the accounting profession is the most entrepreneurial of them all,” he said. “There are more small firms and solo practitioners by number and by percentage in the tax and accounting profession than in any other licensed profession. This is a profession of entrepreneurs, whether we admit it or not, whether we embrace it or not, whether we know how to encourage it or not.”
The panel included New York-based CPAs: Deborah Hammett, Adelman, Katz & Mond; Salvatore Collemi, Collemi Consulting & Advisory Services; Peter Frank, Cornick Garber Sandler; and Jordan Frey, EisnerAmper.
