WS+B’s Voices!

  • Risk Advisory Group members, Sumit Pal, Principal and Practice Co-Leader, and Anurag Sharma, Senior Project Manager, presented a webinar to the firm’s clients and contacts on “Cybersecurity: Are you Prepared?” on October 28. This is a hot topic and well received by attendees. Excellent!

Well done!
  • Justin O’Horo, Partner, and Technology Services Group member, was quoted in a recent article, “How Technology is Changing the Way CPAs Work.” Quoting the article, “Don’t look at his business card… he no longer lists an address on his business cards, explaining that the only address that matters is the email address.” Boom. Great thought leadership!
