The Lieutenant Governor and two Americas Vice-Chairs … in the same week!

Last week was once again an exciting one for the MAcc program! Mary Taylor, Ohio’s Lieutenant Governor, spoke to a group of MAcc, MBA, and Specialized Master of Finance students on Tuesday. As the first CPA to be Auditor of State, and now as the Lt. Governor, she brings a unique perspective to the political arena. She spoke about her accounting background, balancing career and family, her efforts to make Ohio a business-friendly state, and how she was raised to always do the right thing. We were all so impressed by Mary Taylor’s expertise and personality and were thankful for the opportunity to hear her speak. Afterward, we were able to ask questions, and I presented her with a small thank-you gift from Fisher. It was an honor to be able to interact with such an impressive individual!

On Wednesday, Ernst&Young’s Tom Hough (Americas Vice-Chair for Assurance Services) and Debbie Kissire (Americas Vice-Chair and East Central Managing Partner) took time out of their busy schedules to speak to us. They talked about their career paths, issues in the industry, and how to balance details with the big picture in order to form opinions. It was an honor to have them at Fisher and learn from their impressive backgrounds.
