Atlanta, GA (January 8, 2019) – Clay Huffman, a Senior Manager at Frazier & Deeter, has been elected by the members of the Georgia State Board of Accountancy (GSBA), as the new Chairman of the GSBA.

“Clay Huffman has demonstrated exceptional leadership within Frazier & Deeter, the community, and the accounting industry,” said Seth McDaniel, Managing Partner of Frazier & Deeter. “We are delighted to see Clay take on this important role.”
