Flesher became a CPA in 1969 and worked as a staff accountant in public practice and in industry during the 1960s. He began teaching at Appalachian State University in North Carolina before becoming a faculty member at Ole Miss in 1977.

 

He was a member of the AICPA’s Governing Council from 2005 to 2008; the AICPA Foundation Board from 2002 to 2005; and numerous AICPA committees. He is currently a member of the AICPA 125th Anniversary Advisory Committee.
