Callahan Earns Spot on Top Journal’s Editorial Board
For release: October 24, 2011
Dr. Carolyn Callahan, KPMG Distinguished Professor and Director of the School of Accountancy
(SOA) at the Fogelman College of Business & Economics, has been invited to serve as
a member of the editorial board of The Accounting Review, a premier journal for accounting
research, by Senior Editor J. Harry Evans.
In addition to serving in this new role, Callahan has been working to strengthen the
SOA’s ties to the Memphis business community. Recently, for example, Methodist Le
Bonheur Healthcare established two new internships for accounting students. Callahan
also has been working with Reynolds Bone & Griesbeck (RBG) on a new partnership.
“I am scheduled to speak to the full partnership of Reynolds Bone & Griesbeck (RBG)
at their Summit in November,” Callahan said. “Given placement of our students at RBG,
I am now prepared to ask one RBG partner to join the SOA Advisory Board in a multi-year
pledge. With these two, the size, quality and composition of the SOA board would outrank
Georgia and Georgia Tech, my self-selected large city benchmarks.”
