“No one knows this organization and its members better than Tammy,” Tomorsky said. “Her long history and deep knowledge of the WICPA and CPA profession will make this a very smooth transition. Tammy’s demonstrated leadership is certain to have a significant positive impact on the organization and its members.”
“It is with honor and gratitude that I accept this opportunity to step into the president and CEO position,” Hofstede said. “Through the years, I have experienced many changes encompassing both the accounting profession and the WICPA, and I am excited to continue my involvement working with our staff and members, moving the organization forward and making individuals, our profession and the WICPA stronger.”
WICPA has more than 7,300 members in the public accounting, industry, government and education sectors.
