February 13, 2015

Washington, D.C. (February 13, 2015) The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) has issued the following statement by President and CEO Barry C. Melancon, CPA, CGMA, on the death of Harvey Goldschmid:

“I was saddened to learn of Harvey Goldschmid’s passing. He traveled in or near the CPA profession’s orbit for many years. Known as a friend to investors, he brought intelligence, common sense and candor to everything he did, in roles that included SEC commissioner and law professor. Harvey was a former member of the Institute’s Professional Ethics Executive Committee. In recent years, he and I served together on the Center for Audit Quality’s governing board. Harvey will be missed both personally and professionally by all of us who were fortunate enough to know him.”
