Hanson Named New AcSEC Chairman


  

 

The AICPA has named Jay Hanson, national director of accounting at McGladrey & Pullen LLP, chairman–elect of the Accounting Standards Executive Committee (AcSEC). He will succeed AcSEC Chairman Ben Neuhausen, of BDO Seidman LLP, at the committee’s November meeting.

As chairman, Hanson will head one of the AICPA’s most important volunteer bodies. AcSEC is the institute’s official voice on financial reporting matters and develops industry-specific accounting guidance. The committee’s membership includes representatives from business and industry, public practice and the user community.

“Jay brings valuable expertise to AcSEC,” Neuhausen said in a press release. “He oversees his firm’s accounting guidance and its accounting training programs. His experience includes reviewing and coordinating complex international SEC filings. AcSEC will benefit from his wealth of knowledge and leadership.” Hanson is also a member of FASB’s Emerging Issues Task Force.
