UHY Elects Rick David, Chief Operating Officer of US Member Firm as New Chairman

UHY, the international accounting and consultancy network, has appointed the Chief Operating Officer of US member firm UHY Advisors, Inc., Rick David, as the new chairman of UHY.

Rick started his career in the audit practice of one of the ‘Big Four,’ where he practiced for 30 years. He joined the UHY Board of Directors in October 2012 and currently serves as the treasurer of UHY.

As well as being a well-respected auditor and business adviser, Rick also has experience as an accountancy profession regulator and standard setter.

During his more than 40-years’ experience in the industry, Rick has worked with a wide range of clients from multinational corporations to smaller entrepreneurial enterprises. He also contributed to the accounting profession through his service on the Michigan State Board of Accountancy and the Professional Ethics Executive Committee of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

Rick comments: “Being chairman of one of the largest accounting and consultancy networks in the world presents a really exciting opportunity.”

“We are already seeing a large increase in cross-border work coming to the network and that is something that we intend to build on. More of our clients want our member firms to represent them globally and that is what this network facilitates.”

One of Rick’s key priorities during his time as chairman is to expand on the strong links between the member firms across the UHY network and will look to build on the increased flow in referral work between countries to enhance the knowledge shared between local offices. This includes expertise in many newer technological developments taking place in the industry.

Says Rick: “The growth in innovative new accounting practices, integrating AI and data analytics for example, are opening up a range of possibilities for the profession – to do work more efficiently and rigorously. These developments have the potential to lead to dramatic improvements in the audit process.”

“The UHY network gives member firms the opportunity to share knowledge of new developments with offices across the world. Utilising these links also allows us to develop the next generation of leaders in the industry.”

“With a more globalized and connected world than ever, the industry has to ‘think local, go global.’ The UHY network is a key vehicle to help us build relationships with clients and serve them by tapping into that wider bank of expertise across the world.”

Rick takes over as Chairman from Bernard Fay, managing partner at UHY Fay & Co, UHY’s Spanish member firm and one of the top 20 leading firms in Spain.

OCC Receives Highest Marks for Audit Controls

The Fiscal Year 2018 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report presented to the Oakland Community College Board of Trustees at its October board meeting found the college continued to stay on top of its bottom line. The independent auditing firm Plante Moran awarded OCC a clean audit with an “unmodified” opinion.

In essence, OCC maintained its strong internal controls, with no material weaknesses according to Dana Coomes, CPA and partner at Plante Moran, the college received the best opinion possible with excellent results. She congratulated the audit committee for their preparation, involvement, hard work and tough questions.

The OCC 2018 audit committee comprises three elected trustees and four community members. They are Trustees Susan Anderson, committee chair, Royal Oak; Shirley Bryant, Farmington Hills; and Pamala Davis, Clawson; and community members Michael Carroll of Farmington Hills, Helen Kieba-Tolksdorf of Warren, Peggy Scheske of Milford and Sara Voight of Bingham Farms.

The committee helps the Board of Trustees fulfill its oversight responsibilities for financial reporting, internal controls, audits and compliance with related regulations. This includes external review of the audited financial statements as well as risk management and internal controls.

OCC receives revenue from three major sources: local property taxes, state appropriations and tuition.
According to OCC Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services Roberta Remias, while property taxes are slowly catching up to pre-recession levels, state appropriations have remained flat over the past 10 years and have not kept up with inflation or costs. Oakland Community College remains steadfast in offering quality programs while maintaining affordable tuition for the benefit of students and the community.

Since 2015, OCC has been recognized for its financial excellence through the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report program — one of only two community colleges in Michigan to employ CAFR — going beyond the minimum requirements of financial reporting and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles for public entities. In tandem with the annual award, Plante Moran also has recognized the college and prior board audit committees for their excellence in fiscal oversight.

With five campuses in Oakland County, OCC is Michigan’s No. 1 transfer institution, offering nearly 100 degrees and certificates. The College empowers academic and developmental experiences, allowing students to reach their potential and enhance their communities. More than 1 million students have enrolled in the college since it opened in 1965. A seven-person Board of Trustees governs OCC. Board members are elected on a non-partisan, at-large basis, serve as volunteers and are not paid.Learn more at oaklandcc.edu.

Rehmann named to 2018 MSSP Alert Top 100 Managed Security Services Providers list

Second annual list honors leading mssps & cybersecurity companies that safeguard customers’ digital assets

MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., has named Rehmann to the Top 100 MSSPs list for 2018 (http://www.MSSPAlert.com/top100). The list and research identify and honor the top 100 managed security services providers (MSSPs) that specialize in comprehensive, outsourced cybersecurity services.

The Top 100 MSSP rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2018 readership survey combined with aggregated third-party research. MSSPs featured throughout the list and research proactively monitor, manage and mitigate cyber threats for businesses, government agencies, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations of all sizes.

“With only two other Michigan-based companies making the list and one of a few accounting firms, we are honored to be recognized on the MSSP Alert Top 100,” said Rehmann CEO Randy Rupp. “As cybersecurity is essential for all businesses, Rehmann is committed to addressing today’s cyber challenges to reduce risks for our clients and give them peace of mind so that they can confidently focus on what matters most – their business.”

Building and operating a true MSSP requires major financial, technical and business commitments. Fully 63 percent of top MSSPs surveyed maintain their own security operations centers (SOCs) on a 24x7x365 basis. Another 24 percent depend on hybrid models in which some SOC services are outsourced, with the remaining 13 percent either formulating strategies or completely outsourcing their SOC services.

Demand for MSSPs has escalated amid rising cyberattacks, malware and ransomware incidents worldwide. The cybersecurity skills shortage has further heightened the need for world-class MSSPs. The global managed security services market is expected to skyrocket to $101 billion in the next nine years, advancing at an eye-popping 18% compound annual growth rate, according to Persistence Market Research.

“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate Rehmann on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “As MSPs increasingly introduce managed security services, Rehmann continues to stand out in the fiercely competitive cybersecurity market.”

The Top 100 MSSPs list and research were overseen by Content Czar Joe Panettieri (@JoePanettieri). Find the online list and associated report here: http://www.MSSPAlert.com/top100.

Rehmann, with its recent combination with Trivalent Group, was also recently ranked among the world’s 501 most strategic and innovative managed service providers (MSPs), according to Channel Futures MSP 501 Worldwide Company rankings. This makes Rehmann one of only six companies to make both the MSSP 100 and MSP 501 lists.

Additionally, the firm specializes in managed services, managed cloud, cyber security, managed networks and business continuity.

Prof. David Dieterle’s Work Receives National Recognition

Walsh faculty member David A. Dieterle, Ph.D.’s recently completed work Economics: The Definitive Encyclopedia from Theory to Practice has been named one of Booklist’s Top 10 Reference Books of 2018. Booklist is published by the American Library Association and is renowned for providing the most reliable reviews of reference materials for libraries. Dieterle’s work was published by ABC-CLIO, LLC.

The four-volume work took four years to complete. “It was a labor of love,” said Dieterle, “I couldn’t take more than two days off or it would be too difficult to pick up where I was in the process.”

Economics: The Definitive Encyclopedia from Theory to Practice had nearly 200 contributors, including Walsh faculty member John Moore, Ph.D., CPA and two Walsh graduate students. “My name is on it, but without the contributors and editors from ABC-CLIO, it never would have happened. It truly was a team effort,” said Dieterle.

Dr. Dieterle is a Professor in the Finance & Economics Department at Walsh. He has written, edited and contributed to numerous articles and reference books including Economic Thinkers, A Biographical Encyclopedia in 2013 and co-edited Government and the Economy: An Encyclopedia in 2014, both also published by ABC-CLIO. Dieterle has consulted for the Michigan, Illinois and Nebraska departments of education and presented to the Zambian Ministry of Education and the Malawi Ministry of Education, proposing a national curriculum including economic and entrepreneurship education in both countries.
