Eide Bailly Partner Aaron Clayton has been recognized by the American Institute of CPAs as one of its 2021 AICPA Outstanding Young CPA Award recipients.
The annual award, now in its tenth year, recognizes CPAs under age 41 who personify a commitment to the profession, as demonstrated through successful practices and involvement in and contributions to the interest of the accounting profession. This is the first year in which more than one person was selected for the honor. Clayton was one if five to receive the award.
Clayton has been at Eide Bailly since 2004 helping clients in the healthcare, electric and telephone utility industries. He manages the financial audits and consulting activities for hospitals, senior living communities and rural health providers and telephone and electric companies.
“Words can’t describe how much this award means to me, especially considering the past recipients,” said Clayton. “I’m humbled to be recognized with these other incredible leaders. Volunteering has always been important to me because it represents progress and support for our communities, our profession, and the lives of others.”
