Barry V. Gershenovitz Joins Blythe Global Advisors As Strategic Advisor – Tax
I’m pleased to announce that Barry Gershenovitz – a former EY tax partner – has joined Blythe Global Advisors as a strategic advisor for tax accounting. Barry is currently a member of the faculty for masters and undergraduate tax studies at California State University at Fullerton, Mihaylo School of Business and Economics.
An expert in all areas of tax accounting for financial statements, Barry joined CSU Fullerton after more than 25 years at EY where he served major corporations such as Kaiser Aluminum, Universal Electronics, Microsemi, SAR Recycling, MaxLinear, Eldorado Resorts, Del Taco Restaurants and Motorsports Aftermarket Group among others. His expertise helped clients resolve complex issues such as:
