The President, Founder and Owner of Hawthorne Management Mr. Joe Aiken is/was a North Carolina CPA, License #11760.
However, the CPA Licensing Board states that Mr. Aiken "signed a Form of Practice affidavit stating that because the individual practices public accounting in a form not approved by the Board, he or she will not use the CPA title in any way." Yet, I found many references all over the Internet of Mr. Aiken being referred to as Joseph Aiken CPA. Does this company lack ethics, integrity and principles from the top down.
I think they do. Don't call yourself a CPA if the authorizing body says you can't and you sign an Affidavit agreeing.
