Candace Wright, EisnerAmper Partner, has again been named to Accounting Today’s prestigious list of “Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting” for 2023.
Candace, based at EisnerAmper’s Gulf Coast office, is a partner in the firm's Audit & Assurance Services Group. She has approximately 40 years of experience with financial institutions, non-profit entities, governmental organizations, employee benefit plans, retail entities, and health care organizations. Candace serves as the Chair of the Private Company Council of the Financial Accounting Foundation and has served on the Governmental Audit Quality Center's Executive Committee as well as a former chair of the Technical Issues Committee of the AICPA. She is also on the American Heart Association Go Red for Women Executive Leadership Team.

Chosen by their peers and the editorial staff at Accounting Today, the publication commented: “The best leaders pull up those behind them, and the 2023 Top 100 People are exemplars of that … pushing the profession forward during a time of unprecedented change. A solution-oriented mindset and advocacy are what define them as influential. They inspire confidence in accounting’s future.”

“I’m both thrilled and thankful to be in such esteemed company,” said Candace. “When you look at this tremendous list of accomplished professionals, you can’t help but feel the accounting profession is in good hands going forward.”
