Peter A. Margaritis, CPA, MAcc
As the Chief “Edutainment” Officer for Peter A. Margaritis, LLC, my primary role is to help business leaders strengthen their business success skills. For some clients that means helping their team hone technical skills, like U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (U.S. GAAP) or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) . For some clients it may mean working to develop non-technical, professional skills training like Presentation Skills, Business Development Skills and Leadership Skills. With every client my goal is the same: help the team improve their skills to improve business results.
As a speaker and trainer I have delivered over 80 seminars, conferences and workshops on both technical and non-technical topics to clients that include Fortune 500 companies, large and national regional accounting firms, state CPA associations and the American Institute of CPAs.
My credentials include a BA from University of Kentucky, Master’s in Accounting from Case Western Reserve University. I am a CPA and Certified Global Management Accountant with a certificate in IFRS from the Institute of Chartered Accountant in England in Wales. Currently I serve on the faculty of Ohio Dominican University and the University of Maryland at University College. I have worked for companies such as Price Waterhouse, Victoria’s Secret Catalogue (not as a model), Gap Inc. Direct, Barnett Bank, C & S National Bank, Columbus State Community College, and Franklin University.
I am a member of the American Institute of CPAs governing council and a past chair of the executive board of directors of the Ohio Society of CPAs and am an active member of the National Speakers Association. I am also affiliated with the Business Learning Institute out of Towson, MD.
Bottom line, my education and experience have taught me that every business benefits from ongoing skills development.
