Krusick, Joseph of Winter Park, FL

Under the automatic disciplinary provisions of the Institute’s bylaws, Mr. Krusick’s AICPA membership was suspended for two years, effective April 12, 2016, in connection with the disciplinary action taken by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB). Specifically, through an “Offer of Settlement”, and without admitting or denying the charges, the PCAOB barred Mr. Krusick from being an associated person of a registered public accounting firm with the right to apply for reinstatement after two years from the effective date of the PCAOB’s Order. This decision was based on the Board’s findings that Mr. Krusick violated PCAOB Rule 3502, Responsibility Not to Knowingly or Recklessly Contribute to Violations, because he took or omitted to take actions that he knew, or was reckless in not knowing, would directly and substantially contribute to his Firm’s violations of PCAOB rules and standards.
