2. Antonio “Tony” Argiz, CPA/ABV/CFF  

I was born in Havana, Cuba, and it was a great childhood. I still have vivid memories of those times. Those were probably some of the happiest days of my life because our family was together prior to the revolution.My father, who was in the wholesale meat business, was also a minority owner in a bank.

3. How to do as the Chinese when you're in China   CPEDirect

BY Sabine Vollmer
Four years after expanding into China, Merkle, a U.S. company that specializes in customer relationship marketing, employs more than 200 people in Shanghai and Nanjing. Sally Shanks, CPA, vice president and controller at Merkle, will always remember one of the challenges she encountered doing business in China: The document to lease office space looked nothing like the detailed contracts of 90 pages or more she was used to in the United States.

4. Texlin Quinney, CPA  

Texlin Quinney, CPA (left, a former Seton Hall and WNBA women’s basketball player)I played college basketball at Seton Hall and finished in ’98 with my master’s in business management with a concentration in accounting. After I graduated, I played every day. Basketball was a part of who I was, so I played on semipro teams, traveling teams, and recreation teams.

5. Jeanne Bonk, CPA, CGMA  

Growing up, I wasn’t really into football. It was more baseball and basketball. I was a huge Dodgers and Lakers fan. I was probably the only 10-year-old girl who had giant posters of Wilt Chamberlain and Jerry West in her bedroom. My father started his own business. At the family dinner table, we didn’t have the TV on, and our discussions always included business.

6. Mark Biersmith, CPA, CGMA  

Time management is a key to my productivity. When I was a young professional, I wasn’t really efficient at what I did. I was trained by a woman who was a CPA, and she put tremendous emphasis on the importance of managing time well. Each time I see people working long hours, I wonder if they’re working efficiently.

7. John Lacey, CPA, Ph.D.  

Jay Leno, Kathleen Lacey and John Lacey I’ve served on many accounting boards and committees. The experience has been great. I’ve made so many friends, and I feel like I’ve made at least some difference in our profession as a consequence. In addition to teaching at Cal State, Long Beach, I teach accounting to judges, investment managers, and bankers.

8. Steve Buonomo, CPA  

Frankford Leather Co. is a wholesale distribution business. We sell shoe-repair supplies, shoe-store supplies, and foot-comfort supplies such as insoles, arch supports, and orthotics. It has evolved from a traditional shoe-repair business into more of a medical, foot-comfort business. The business was started by my grandfather in 1950, and my brother, my cousin, and I are third-generation (owners).

9. Rebecca Machinga, CPA  

I have been employed by WithumSmith+Brown since I was an intern in college. I accepted their offer after graduation, and I celebrated my 20th anniversary with the firm in November. When I first started, we didn’t have a formal mentoring program. So I gravitated toward people that thought like me, people that I wanted to emulate, or positions I wanted to have.
