TFG Senior Executives obtained the CGMA credential

We are pleased to announce that Erika M. Viall, Senior Director of Financial Operations, and Valerie H. Leary, Financial Reporting Manager, have obtained the CGMA credential offered through the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). The CGMA is a strategically vital complement to the CPA credential. This designation allows a CPA to be recognized as part of a global community of professional financial and management accountants, as well as demonstrating accounting expertise in such areas as leading strategically with management to make more informed decisions; helping organizations manage change, risk and uncertainty; protecting corporate assets; and promoting operational efficiency and effectiveness.

To qualify, you must meet any one of the CGMA experience requirement options below, as well as be a voting member of the AICPA in good standing. A minimum of:

  • Three years of financial (including internal audit) or management accounting experience in business, industry, or government, or
  • Two years of financial or management accounting experience plus one year in public accounting, or
  • Three years of financial/management accounting experience on a consulting basis, or
  • Three years in a management accounting role focused on the management and operation of an accounting firm.
