The Massachusetts Society of CPAs said Tuesday that their president and CEO, Eileen McAnneny, will step down at the end of next month and a search for a new president is starting immediately.

McAnneny is joining the Massachusetts Taxpayers’ Foundation as its president. She is stepping down as head of the MSCPA effective Jan. 30, 2015. She became president and CEO in January of this year, after serving as director of the government relations and public policy group at Fidelity Investments (see MSCPA Names New President and CEO).

“The MSCPA leadership and board have enjoyed working with Eileen over the past year and appreciate her many contributions to the Society during her tenure,” said William Mahoney, CPA, chairman of the MSCPA board of directors. “Eileen leaves the MSCPA a strong and vital organization dedicated to serving our more than 11,000 members and we wish her well in future endeavors.”

The Society recently completed a strategic, long-range plan to direct the organization over the course of the next five years and is scheduled to introduce new benefits to its members this January, including health and dental insurance.

“The MSCPA is fortunate to have a long-tenured and very strong staff to continue the mission of our organization and support all of our ongoing activities and member services,” said Mahoney.
