Bob Herz Inducted into the Accounting Hall of Fame
Congratulations to WebFilings own Bob Herz!
Bob was inducted today into the Accounting Hall of Fame at the 2012 American Accounting Association's annual meeting held at the Gaylord National in Washington, DC. The impact Bob has made on the field of accounting is evident in the accolades he has received. Bob is both a U.S. Certified Public Accountant, a U.K. Chartered Accountant, and a gold medal winner on the uniform CPA examination.
He has testified many times in front of Congress, chaired various professional committees and served on numerous task forces, public policy commissions and governmental advisory groups concerning key issues confronting financial reporting and the accounting profession both domestically and internationally.
Bob Herz served with great distinction as Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Chairman for over eight years during some very challenging times. His greatest contribution was his untiring work to converge accounting standards worldwide while not sacrificing the high quality of U.S. standards in the bargain. Today Bob continues to serve the profession in many capacities, and I think he’s a terrific choice for the Accounting Hall of Fame!
