ATLANTA (PRWEB) December 03, 2018
Aprio, LLP, a nationally-recognized CPA-led business advisory firm headquartered in Atlanta is excited to announce that Jagruti Solanki, senior manager, has been selected to receive the 2018 Innovative Practitioner Award from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and CPA.com for her role as an early champion of blockchain accounting and consulting services, and her leadership in the development and growth of Aprio’s Blockchain Practice.
With the emergence of blockchain technology, Jagruti has been critical in the development of blockchain accounting best practices and the launch of Aprio’s Blockchain Practice. Jagruti and our blockchain team are pioneers in blockchain accounting having provided tax, audit, audit readiness, privacy, security and business consulting services to companies utilizing blockchain technology for more than five years.
While Aprio’s Blockchain Practice originated in Atlanta, Georgia, the client base today is located all over the world. Jagruti has worked with Aprio’s International team to serve clients around the globe and she has spoken about blockchain at conferences in the U.S. and internationally. Jagruti frequently consults with private businesses as well as Fortune 100 companies.
“Jagruti and Samantha define what being an innovative practitioner is all about: the ability to assess where the profession is going, incorporate emerging technologies to either improve an existing service or launch a new one, and then successfully position the practitioner’s firm as a leader in that area,” said Erik Asgeirsson, president and CEO of CPA.com. “Both blockchain and AI stand to make a big impact on the profession and our honorees are advancing strategies around these technologies for their firm.”
“Since Aprio began working with its first blockchain client over five years ago, Jagruti stepped up and dove deep into the accounting nuances, developing best practices for our blockchain clients,” said Mitchell Kopelman, partner-in-charge of the Technology & Blockchain Practice at Aprio. “And I am thrilled to share that Jagruti is being promoted to partner January 1, 2019 in recognition of her leadership on this initiative and many others.”
The Innovative Practitioner Award is an annual award that recognizes innovation in process, services or technology implementation in public accounting. Award winners are chosen through the vote of their peers and an advisory panel of CPA.com. Jagruti will be recognized for this award this week at the 2018 Digital CPA Conference.
