Neuhausen Recognized for Contributions to Standard Setting


Ben Neuhausen, former chairman of the Institute’s Accounting Standards Executive Committee (AcSEC), received the AICPA Special Recognition Award at the recent AICPA Regional Meeting of Council in Chicago.

 

He was given the award, which recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to a particular area of the profession, for his contributions to accounting standard setting.

 

Neuhausen is a partner and national director of accounting for BDO Seidman LLP. Previously, he was a partner in the Professional Standards Group of Arthur Andersen LLP. He was also a practice fellow at FASB. During his 11-year tenure on AcSEC, he led the committee in its transition from a standard setter into a provider of practical, nonauthoritative accounting guidance.
