Hemming Morse announces that Partner David Grisham (San Francisco) and Manager Nathan Fan (Los Angeles) have completed the California Society of Certified Public Accountants’ (CalCPA) Leadership Institute. Grisham and Fan join several past Hemming Morse Leadership Institute graduates, including Partners Travis Armstrong and Greg Regan, Principal Jodie Rolih and Managers Brian Repucci and Tatyana Shtyrkova.

CalCPA’s Leadership Institute provides members instruction on the specific skills necessary to grow into future leadership positions at CalCPA and in the profession more broadly. Participants grow as volunteers and businesses leaders and focus on improving leadership behavior, critical thinking and management skills. The class of 2015-16 was recently honored at the January CalCPA Council meeting.

“Hemming Morse has a rich tradition of fostering personal and career growth among our team members, as we know industry and community leadership skills translate to well-rounded professionals who provide the highest level of client service,” said Hemming Morse Managing Partner Greg McKinnon. “Congratulations to David and Nathan on this accomplishment!”
