Gov. Mike DeWine appointed Amr Elaskary, CPA, audit manager at Clark Schaefer Hackett, to the Accountancy Board of Ohio through Oct. 20, 2029.
Elaskary expressed his gratitude for being considered and nominated:
“I’m honored and excited to be appointed by the Governor of Ohio to serve on the board to lead and influence the future of the CPA industry. One of the biggest challenges facing the industry is the reduction of the CPA pipeline. One of the goals of the board for this year is to grow the pipeline by increasing awareness of the CPA role among younger generations and strengthening the trust of the public in those who are certified as CPAs. I promise to commit my time, expertise, and knowledge to serve the industry and represent Clark Schaefer Hackett at its best.”
Audit Shareholder Brian Todd celebrates Elaskary’s accomplishment: “We are so proud of Amr for receiving this distinction. His skill set, compassion, and attention to detail will take the Accountancy Board of Ohio’s work to new heights and positively impact the industry. What a wonderful way to continue to serve and better the lives of our communities.”
Elaskary has extensive experience providing actionable recommendations to his clients to help them improve the efficiency and effectiveness of internal controls. He is a CPA practicing in Ohio and Michigan and a Certified Fraud Examiner. He earned bachelor's and master's degrees in accounting from the University of Toledo. He is also a board member of the Lucas County Health Department.
