Three Enter B&I Hall of Fame
The AICPA and Ajilon Finance, which provides accounting and financial staffing services, inducted three members into the Institute’s Business & Industry Hall of Fame. Award winners are John H. Higgins, CPA/CITP, and Cynthia Cooper, CPA, CFE and certified information systems auditor (CISA); John Morrow, AICPA vice-president for new finance; award winner Jeffrey Zydeck, CPA; and William DeMario, Ajilon senior vice-president. The awards recognized the inductees’ insight and vision, understanding of their companies, leadership, commitment and strategic ability. Higgins for two decades has helped CPA firms use technology to improve their efficiency and boost profitability; Cooper—known widely for her exposure of fraud at WorldCom—established a consulting practice to advise companies on corporate governance and ethics; and Zydeck, as CFO of Peerless Steel, championed a Lifo to Fifo inventory-method conversion that saved the company millions of dollars in federal taxes.
