Scottsdale, AZ December 4, 2012- Samuel Kerch, Controller, Symmetry Software, has been awarded the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation from the American Institute of CPAs and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants. The CGMA designation recognizes professionals who have deep understanding of finance and have expanded their business skills through experience as management accountants to help drive better business decisions.

"I am honored to receive the CGMA designation, and I am delighted that the accounting profession recognizes the value that management accountants bring to organizations," Kerch said. "This designation represents a commitment to advanced education, ethics, and professional development that are critical to career success."

Kerch is an Arizona CPA with a background in the technology, tax, accounting, and payroll industries. He is currently the Controller and Director of Tax Compliance at Symmetry Software, a payroll software company in Scottsdale, AZ. He has been quoted in many national newspapers and is also a speaker at payroll meetings around the country. Sam is also the principle for AskCPASam, PLC, an Arizona-based accounting firm offering full-service tax preparation for both individual and small business clients since 2006.

AICPA and CIMA, two of the world's most prestigious accounting bodies, established the Chartered Global Management Accountant designation in January 2012 to elevate the profession of management accounting. The designation recognizes the most talented and committed management accountants with the discipline and skill to drive sustainable business success. To qualify for the CGMA in the U.S., finance professionals must have trained as a CPA, passing the Uniform CPA Examination and meeting educational requirements in their states.
