CPA Network Congratulates Tom Groskopf

We want to congratulate our favorite A&A educator, Tom Groskopf on being named to Accounting Today’s list of the Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting. This honor recognizes Tom’s leadership of the Center for Plain English Accounting, a key program of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. During his tenure at CPEA, Tom has traveled the country to more than 150 CPA firms to explain in “Plain English” difficult technical accounting and auditing standards including the new Revenue and Lease Accounting standards. Tom’s work at CPEA has helped over 30,000 accounting and audit professionals.

“I’m honored by this recognition and humbled by the accomplishments of the others on this list,” Tom noted. I congratulate my fellow honorees and I thank Accounting Today for including me on this list.”

”The business environment today is more complicated than ever.  This includes massive technological change, globalization, standards/regulation change, political instability, and tight labor markets,” Tom added, “I look forward to continuing to assist the clients of Barnes, Dennig and CPEA member firms in navigating these challenges.

Tom’s past service on the Private Company Council, representative of the United States on the International Financial Reporting Standards’ Small- and Medium-sized Entity Implementation Group and the Private Company Financial Reporting Committee underscore why he was named to the Top 100 List.
