The Virginia Society of CPAs has named Stephanie R. Peters as its new president and chief executive.

Peters has worked at the society for the past 10 years, most recently as the group’s executive vice president. The organization’s former president and chief executive, Thomas M. Berry Jr., retired on April 30 after serving in the post for 30 years.
