MHM expands professional expertise and support with IFRS Solutions Group

Mayer Hoffman McCann's IFRS Solutions GroupLEAWOOD, KAN (April 11, 2013) - Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. (MHM) has formed an IFRS Solutions Group to assist clients either in the transitions from U.S. GAAP to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) or serve in an advisory role providing guidance on complex IFRS matters.

As a part of this effort, MHM is putting close to 25 professionals through the AICPA's IFRS Certificate Program, of which nearly 20 have completed. "With the number of professionals MHM has trained in IFRS matters, along with the formation of this group, MHM is clearly demonstrating our desire and ability to work in the IFRS space at a commitment level not found with other firms. While many firms are taking a wait and see approach to IFRS, MHM's leadership realizes that IFRS is, and will continue to be, part of the accounting lexicon of the future," stated Keith Peterka, head of the IFRS Solutions Group for MHM.

Peterka also serves on the IFRS Small and Medium-sized Entities Implementation Group, an advisory body to the IASB to support the international adoption of IFRS and monitor its implementation.

The MHM IFRS Solutions Group is spread throughout the country in most major markets and gateway cities and the professionals include: 

The most recent addition to the group is Marco Pulido who was recently hired to the firm's Los Angeles office. Pulido has more than 13 years financial reporting and auditing experience. He most recently served as an IFRS leader with Deloitte, providing IFRS conversion and advisory services in Colombia and other emerging markets in Central and South America.

"Mayer Hoffman McCann is always keeping an eye towards the future of our profession and making the necessary investments to take care of our clients. In this competitive global economy, IFRS is an area clients are requiring support and that will continue to see increased demand in the future," stated Bill Hancock, President of MHM.

Founded in 1954, Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. has over 30 offices nationwide and more than 285 shareholders. MHM specializes in attest services for mid-market and growing businesses, not-for-profit organizations and government agencies. Services include financial statement audits of public and private companies, employee benefit plan audits, audits over internal controls of service organizations (formerly known as SAS 70), reviews, compilations, litigation support and reports on performance of agreed-upon procedures.
