The AICPA has issued the following statement by president and CEO Barry Melancon on the death of Harvey Goldschmid: “I was saddened to learn of Harvey Goldschmid’s passing. He traveled in or near the CPA profession’s orbit for many years. Known as a friend to investors, he brought intelligence, common sense and candor to everything he did, in roles that included SEC commissioner and law professor. Harvey was a former member of the Institute’s Professional Ethics Executive Committee. In recent years, he and I served together on the Center for Audit Quality’s governing board. Harvey will be missed both personally and professionally by all of us who were fortunate enough to know him.”
