Zhen, Keith of Brooklyn, NY

Under the automatic disciplinary provisions of the Institute’s bylaws, Mr. Zhen’s AICPA membership is suspended for two years, effective July 23, 2015, in connection with the disciplinary action taken by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. Specifically, the PCAOB barred Mr. Zhen from being an associated person of a registered public accounting firm with the right to file a petition for Board consent to associate with a registered public accounting firm after two years from the date of the Order. This decision was based on the Board’s findings that Mr. Zhen violated PCAOB rules and standards in connection with the audit of five issuer audit clients.
