As CEO of The IIA, he will drive the vision and management of a nearly 80-year-old organization with more than 200,000 members, 156 chapters, and 112 affiliates in nearly 200 countries and territories. His focus will be on enhancing membership services, creating new approaches to learning and competency development programs, fulfilling The IIA’s multimillion-dollar digital transformation initiative, and enhancing the value of internal audit, particularly in its role of addressing organizational risks and opportunities. A seasoned executive and skilled association strategist, Pugliese most recently was President and CEO of the California Society of CPAs, the largest state CPA organization in the United States, with more than 45,000 members. From 1997 through 2018, he served in key leadership positions at what is now the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants, the world’s largest accounting professional organization. His roles included executive vice president of membership, technology, and learning; chief operating officer and senior vice president of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, where he oversaw the AICPA’s $50 million relocation to North Carolina; and vice president of business reporting and member innovation. A graduate of the University of North Florida (Jacksonville), Pugliese has been repeatedly recognized as one of the most influential people in accounting, appearing most recently on the cover of Accounting Today.
