Buffalo CPA Wins ‘Accountant of the Month’ Contest
Via Facebook, Accounting Today Selects Sword-Wielding Accountant for July Honor
Accounting Today, a leading provider of professional news, tools and perspective for the tax and accounting community, has chosen Michael Biondo, tax manager at Freed Maxick CPAs of Buffalo, N.Y., as July’s “Accountant of the Month.”
The Accountant of the Month contest challenges Accounting Today’s audience and community of Facebook friends to break the stereotype that accountants are boring. Entries are submitted through Accounting Today’s Facebook page. At the end of each month, the editors pick the CPA who they believe best demonstrates that accountants can be just as unconventional and outgoing, and just as, well, fun as other professionals.
Biondo’s winning entry detailed his 22-year experience as a member of the Society of Creative Anachronism, where he researches and recreates the arts, skills, and traditions of pre-17th-century Europe and participates in full-contact armored combat.
“Becoming Accountant of the Month is a great honor,” Biondo said. “In the last few months, I passed the CPA Exam and have been promoted to manager, so this was icing on the cake. There may be boring people in accounting, but I think you can say that about most professions. Accountants need to be engaging, dynamic, and well-rounded business people in order to be successful.”
Accountants interested in entering an upcoming month’s Accountant of the Month contest can enter at through the Accounting Today website or Facebook page. This month’s entries are due by August 17. http://www.accountingtoday.com/accountant-of-the-month-contest/
Winners of Accountant of the Month receive a free delegate pass to Accounting Today’s Growth and Profitability Conference, held Oct. 28-30, 2012, in Boca Raton, FL. The winners are promoted on Accounting Today’s website, its social media pages, and profiled in the print magazine. The winner also receives a caricature of their entry and will be added to the Accounting Today community illustration at the top of Accounting Today’s Facebook page.
