New York (Dec. 22, 2003) -- Richard Caturano, president of Boston-based Vitale, Caturano & Co., has been named chairman of the American Institute of CPAs’ PCPS Executive Committee.

The PCPS Executive Committee, composed of members from across the United States, is charged with representing the interests of local and regional accounting firms.

Caturano succeeds William Balhoff and will serve a three-year term.

"Rich will be a great leader for our committee," said Balhoff. "He is a highly respected practitioner and a dedicated advocate of small firm interests."

Caturano has been a member of the PCPS Executive Committee for two years. He chaired the PCPS Products & Services Development Task Force and chaired the 2003 AICPA Practitioners' Conference Committee. He has also served on the AICPA's Staffing Task Force and the PCPS Communications Task Force.

"PCPS is making every effort to support local and regional firms and help them weather the broad impact of changing regulations," said Caturano. "In the coming years, we hope to offer even more practice-management tools and focus on bringing the concerns of these firms to the attention of standard setters and regulators."

PCPS, the AICPA Alliance for CPA Firms, is comprised of almost 6,000 local and regional CPA member firms within the American Institute of CPAs.
