JamisonMoneyFarmer continues to take a leadership role in the business and CPA world in the state of Alabama. After we shared Carl Jamison’s work with the Alabama Business Council last week, we are pleased to announce that another JMF shareholder, Leighanne Faught, has been appointed by Governor Robert Bentley, upon confirmation of the Senate, to serve on the Alabama State Board of Public Accountancy. This is a four-year term which will run from October 1, 2011 through September 30, 2015.
Leighanne is the first JMF shareholder to be appointed to the Board, and only the third woman ever to be named to the Board. One of our firm’s namesakes, James E. Money, was also a past president of the Alabama Society of CPAs. Leighanne manages the firm’s Accounting and Auditing practice and assists with the research and implementation of new accounting standards, including international standards. She started at the firm in 1986 and made shareholder in 1998. She holds a BS in Accounting, cum laude, from the University of Alabama, is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Alabama Society of Certified Public Accountants, and is the A&A Liaison for CPAmerica International, Inc.
Congrats Leighanne! We are very proud of you!
