Partner Herbert J. Geary III, CPA, CGMA, has been named chair of the 2022-23 Board of Directors of the Maryland Association of CPAs.
According to an announcement by the MACPA, Geary was elected chair by the MACPA membership during the association’s 2022 Annual Meeting held in Ocean City, Md. He succeeds Aronson LLC Partner Lexy Kessler, who served as 2021-22 chair.
In his remarks to Maryland CPAs, Geary outlined a broad agenda for the coming year that includes four main tenets:
“Our future isn’t created, it’s co-created,” Geary said. “That kind of collaboration among the MACPA’s board, our volunteers, and our leadership team has resulted in a shared vision for our association’s future and a solid strategy for how to achieve it. I’m committed to realizing that vision by creating and expanding opportunities for our members, volunteers, and leaders to collaborate. We can build a blueprint for the profession of tomorrow, but only if we work together.”
An MACPA member since 1988, Geary has more than 35 years of accounting and auditing experience, specializing in areas that include closely held businesses, manufacturing, wholesalers, distributors, construction contractors, local governments, and non-profit organizations. He serves on the Board of Directors and several committees for TidalHealth, a hospital system that services Maryland’s lower Eastern Shore. He is also a member of the Greater Salisbury Committee, a non-profit organization committed to improving the Salisbury community.
In addition to his work on the MACPA’s Board of Directors, Geary is a past president of the association’s Eastern Shore Chapter and a former member of the Governing Council for the American Institute of CPAs.
