He also serves as the chief financial officer at Exacta Aerospace, a leading Tier One supplier of high-precision aerospace parts and assemblies.

The Sells Award was established in 1923 in honor of Elijah Watt Sells, one of the first people to qualify as a CPA in New York state. Candidates for the award must have completed testing during the previous calendar year and passed all four sections of the Uniform CPA Examination on their first attempt, earning the highest cumulative scores. Winners are presented with plaques from the AICPA.
