Filling Gaps in the Accounting Talent Pool: Interview with Dave Burritt, Part 2

Friday, January 18, 2013

Jeff Thomson, CMA, President and CEO at IMA, recently spoke with Dave Burritt, CMA, CPA, who is the former CFO and vice president of global finance and strategic services for a Fortune 100 Company. Dave was also IMA’s representative on the prestigious Pathways Education Commission, which was chartered two years ago by the Department of the Treasury to address the talent management gap. The Commission dealt with talent from a supply chain perspective, looking at education – student development, curriculum and faculty development – and it recently released its final report. Dave was in many ways the voice of the employer. In the second half of this two-part series, we spoke with Dave about addressing talent gaps at the college level, as well as ways young professionals can prepare for a full, satisfying career in finance or accounting.
