Mal Grewal, CPA, CA
“This is a time of unprecedented change in our profession. I believe
a role on Council would allow me to develop professionally and also
allow me to give back to the profession that has provided me with so
many opportunities.”
“I have a passion for inclusiveness and talent development. The
ability of our new CPA brand to be recognized as a respected and
valued profession of choice ultimately depends on our ability to attract the best and
brightest, and capacity to provide these individuals the skills, training, and experience
they need to suceed. My prioirities would be to ensure all voices are heard, to build
consensus through thoughtful engagement, and to foster public confidence in the
profession by offering valuable education, communications, and services to members.
This commitment would also extend to the broader community by helping people
build their careers in the CPA profession and making strategic use of our professional
skills to serve our communities and build on our strong professional reputation.”
“In our Assurance practice at Ernst & Young LLP, I have devleoped a reputation for
leading diverse and high-performing teams that bring together different backgrounds
and viewpoints to dliever unique solutions to challenging problems.”
