Phoenix (Oct. 19, 2011)—Gregory J. Anton, CPA, is the new chairman of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the world's largest organization representing the accounting profession.

In his acceptance speech, Anton detailed the many ways technology is changing the profession. Automation has transformed the way financial information is collected, processed and presented, but a CPA's value continues to lie in his or her ability to solve problems and identify opportunities for clients and employers, he said. "As CPAs, we can decipher, disseminate and manage knowledge," said AICPA Chairman Greg Anton. "This is what a computer or smartphone cannot do."
