AICPA appoints new chair

The American Institute of CPA’s (AICPA) has appointed Tracey Golden as its new chair for a one-year voluntary term. The appointment was made by AICPA’s governing council at its first-ever virtual meeting.

As of 1 June 2020, Golden, an audit partner at Deloitte, will also serve as chair of the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (the Association), the unified voice of the AICPA and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).

In her acceptance speech, Golden said: “We are truly living disruption – not incremental change but a radical break from the familiar. Our profession has a crucial role to play in helping navigate this disruption. We are here to help businesses and individuals get through these tough times, learn from them and grow. In an uncertain world, CPAs are needed now more than ever as trusted advisors who can lead a path forward.”

Golden spent the past year as vice chair of the AICPA and has held several other volunteer leadership positions within the organisation. These include serving as a member of the Board of Directors and governing Council, and previously serving as chair of both the Audit and Finance committee and Peer Review Board.

At Deloitte, Golden has responsibility for facilitating and coordinating reputation and risk-related initiatives and matters in the Americas region.
