Michael J. Pallerino has joined Insightful Accountant team as an editor. I have worked with Mike at three other companies in the past and look forward to having his more than 25 years of professional B2B experience on our team.
He will be working in various capacities to help us deliver even more of the content you want and expect. Mike also will be joining us at QuickBooks Connect in October and Accountex in November, so if you see him, please welcome him to what I truly believe is one of the best B2B markets around – the accounting profession.
Mike already has a couple of projects on his to-do list, so you may receive an email or phone call from him to kick around some ideas, get some quotes or talk sports. Yes, he's a big Pirates, Penguins and Lions (yes, Lions) fan.
Please join me in welcoming Mike to the wonderful world of accounting.
