[IMGCAP(1)]The Ohio Society of CPAs has appointed Scott Wiley as president and CEO.

Wiley succeeds J. Clarke Price who retired from the organization after 22 years. Wiley will step into the leadership position in February.

“I cannot wait to get started," Wiley said in a statement. "Clearly, speed is important but we will attack both the opportunities and competitive challenges ahead with an appropriate balance of urgency and thoughtfulness."

Wiley was selected to lead OSCPA, which is the fifth largest state CPA society, after an extensive nationwide search. The CEO search was conducted by association and non-profit executive search experts Vetted Solutions and overseen by a committee of OSCPA members and past leaders.

"My immediate focus will be working closely with the Executive Board and OSCPA’s staff, meeting CPAs across Ohio, and diving deeply into our products and services to learn more about what our 22,000 members need to succeed in today’s complex business environment."

As OSCPA’s president and CEO, Wiley will lead strategic planning initiatives, maintain the organization's national sphere of influence and expand advocacy, continuing education and membership growth and retention programs.

“We are pleased to welcome Scott to OSCPA,” Brendan Fitzgerald, chair of OSCPA’s executive board, said in a statement. “His broad experience in many areas of association management will be vital in retaining OSCPA’s position as a top association and driving development of even more innovative programs that serve CPAs and the public.”

Wiley currently serves on the board of directors of the American Society of Association Executives. He previously served as President of the Indiana Society of Association Executives.
