Julian Dozier is the 2022-23 chair of the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

“The FICPA has positively impacted every stage of my career, and I appreciate my fellow volunteers for entrusting me with this role,” said Dozier, a shareholder at Thomas Howell Ferguson P.A. CPAs and the director of the firm’s assurance services department. “The FICPA exists to protect the value of the CPA license, promote the accounting profession, educate and enrich its members, and innovate through forward-thinking leadership.

“This is an exciting moment for our profession. As CPAs, we can each design our career to suit our own goals and values; we offer incredible opportunities for students and the newly licensed; and together we ensure CPAs thrive as we power the success of Florida businesses and the communities we serve.”

Dozier joined the FICPA in 2006, started volunteering with the Accounting Principles and Auditing Standards Committee in 2010, and has been a member of its Council since 2016. He is a member of the AICPA’s Council and a graduate of its Leadership Academy. An active member of his local community, Dozier is the Immediate Past Chair of Leadership Tallahassee and has served in leadership roles with the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra, Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce, and LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts, among others. He was named to CPA Practice Advisor’s “40 Under 40” in 2021 and received the AICPA’s “Standing Ovation” recognition in 2016. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting from Florida State University.

“Julian is the perfect person to help steward the FICPA into the future,” said FICPA President & CEO Shelly Weir. “We are at an exciting time in the organization’s history, and I can think of no better person to lead us through the final stages of our transition.”
