Adding to the expertise and services offered by its assurance group, Richmond, Va.-based Cherry Bekaert LLP (FY14 net revenue of $130.8 million) announced John Jobe V was admitted as a partner.

Previously an audit senior manager at a Big 4 firm, Jobe’s new role will be based in Cherry Bekaert’s headquarters in Richmond, Va. He will provide guidance with SEC filings, accounting for investments and derivatives, revenue recognition, debt/equity classification, discontinued operations, impairment of long-lived assets, exit and disposal activities and foreign currency.

“We expect John to be a valuable resource clients can utilize for their national and international growth aspirations,” says Robert Martin III, MP of Cherry Bekaert’s Richmond practice. “Specifically, John’s experience with large, international companies and his extensive knowledge of U.S. GAAP and SEC rules and regulations will complement the existing talent of our firm’s assurance group.”

With more than 12 years of experience, Jobe has handled integrated and financial statement audit issues on both a domestic and global scale. Recently, he spent two years in London as a technical resource on PCAOB, SEC, U.S. GAAP and IFRS matters from clients and engagement teams in Europe and beyond.
