Compliance Week reports that the AICPA has named Kimberly Ellison-Taylor, global accounting strategy director for Oracle America, as its new chair. Eric Hansen, chief operating officer of the national CPA and advisory firm BKD, was voted in as vice chair. The publication noted that, “In her acceptance speech, Ellison-Taylor said one key for the profession going forward will be pursuing ‘complementary and sometimes unexpected skills that drive new ways of thinking and doing.’” She named a number of emerging fields—Big Data, cyber-security assurance, and advisory services, for example—where this approach will pay dividends.
