This month's special feature is an interview with Philip B. Livingston, president and CEO of the Financial Executives Institute (FEI). FEI's members--primarily controllers, treasurers, and chief financial officers of blue-chip companies--are key players in the public company financial reporting process in the United States and Canada.
Livingston, a CPA, assumed FEI's presidency on April 1, succeeding P. Norman Roy. In this CPA Journal interview, Livingston tells of his immediate plans for FEI and gives his opinion on the issues that CFOs and CPAs have in common. While supportive of FASB and the SEC in their efforts to make U.S. financial reporting the best in the world, he does not hesitate to speak out when he perceives that they are heading down the wrong path. *
