cpa2biz Puts Senior Leadership Team in Place.

cpa2biz, the profession's Internet portal scheduled to launch by early summer, has assembled an accomplished senior leadership team with a depth of experience in accounting, information technology and business development. The management team's diverse and successful record of accomplishment weds traditional and Internet disciplines to advance the cpa2biz goal of positioning the CPA as the e-commerce problem solver for small business.

President & CEO Brett L. Prager has been a catalyst for successful business ventures for more than a decade. In addition, he regularly lectures at the Columbia Business School on a range of business and entrepreneurial leadership subjects.

Four CPAs join Prager on the senior leadership team: William L. Reeb, Vice President, CPA Network, leads the effort to educate CPAs about the portfolio of cpa2biz offerings; Mark Herman, Chief Financial Officer, previously served as CFO at Caminus Corporation, a leading provider of software solutions and strategic consulting to the energy industry; Wayne Harding, Director, Head of Product Strategy, was vice president for outsourcing for Great Plains Software Inc., a leading supplier of mid-market business applications; and John F. Hudson, Director, Head of Marketing Strategy, was with KPMG Peat Marwick for 15 years before joining the AICPA in 1989 as chief knowledge officer and vice president of strategic planning and knowledge management.

Rounding out the cpa2biz senior leadership team are several business management and e-commerce experts: Charles L. Cohn, Chief Strategy Officer, was a vice president at First Fidelity Bank and at Bank of America, and most recently served as vice president of marketing and sales for the AICPA: Mike Mitchell, Chief Technology Officer, helped launch, an ASP hub providing essential products and services to small businesses; Erik Asgeirsson, Vice President, Professional Markets, most recently was vice president of business operations for Rethinkinc, an Internet health services company; Srinivasa Murali, Vice President of Product Development, was a principal in the Financial Services practice at CSC, managing engagements for large clients such as AIG, Swiss Reinsurance and Mutual of New York; K.
