Padwe to succeed Skadden as AICPA vice president-tax.

Gerald W. Padwe, CPA, was named vice-president-taxation of the AICPA, succeeding Donald H. Skadden, who retires on July 1.

Padwe is associate national tax director-professional and practice and a member of the Washington national tax group of Deloitte & Touche.

As the top staff officer of the AICPA's 24,000-member tax division, Padwe will lead the Institute's efforts in the tax area--currently striving for tax simplification--and will head a staff of two directors and nine technical managers at the AICPA Washington office.

Padwe was a member of the Internal Revenue Service Commissioner's Advisory Group in 1985-86. In recent years, he was a member of the AICPA federal taxation executive committee, chairman of the committees on tax policy and planning and on tax legislative liaison as well as chairman of a policy committee and task force on tax system restructuring.

Skadden became the AICPA's first vice-president-taxation in 1987, after a distinguished academic career at the Universities of Michigan and Illinois. Under his leadership, the AICPA greatly improved its working relationships with the IRS and the tax-writing committees of Congress. He also led the effort to organize members interested in tax matters into a new and effective division within the AICPA and to expand staff and services to meet the needs of the new tax division membership.

Skadden also served as a member of the Commissioner's Advisory Group.
