He joined the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) in 2006 and eventually was promoted to associate director. Nance joined Chesapeake in 2017. The speaker series is sponsored by the Center for Legal Studies and Business Ethics.


“I think TJ’s background will be particularly interesting to any accounting students, but the meeting is open to all majors to learn about how he’s navigated ethical leadership situations in his various careers,” said Rachel Cox, instructor of professional accounting in the OSU School of Accounting. “It’s especially unique to have someone with PCAOB experience.”


The OSU Student CPT is open to all majors in Spears Business and is accepting new members. The Student CPT is an ethical leadership club created through the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA). With more than 40 chapters on college campuses nationwide, Student CPT provides an interactive environment where ethical business behaviors and ideas can flourish, while creating opportunities for students to network with the business community and develop professional leadership skills.


OSU’s chapter was recently awarded the Gold Star of distinction from NASBA for going above and beyond chapter requirements.
