FAF STATEMENT ON UNITED WAY OF COASTAL FAIRFIELD COUNTY AWARD TO FASB CHAIR RUSSELL GOLDEN AND TRACEY GOLDEN


Norwalk, CT—June 9, 2015—The following statement should be attributed to Teresa S. Polley, president and chief executive officer of the Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF):

“On behalf of the FAF, I am pleased to congratulate Russ and Tracey Golden on receiving the United Way of Coastal Fairfield County’s 2015 Tocqueville Giving and Engagement Award. This prestigious award honors leaders whose generous support of their local United Way makes a profound and lasting impact on local families in need.

“Although perhaps best known as ambassadors of the accounting profession—Russ as chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board, and Tracey as a CPA and senior partner in the national office of Deloitte’s accounting and auditing practice—the Goldens also are committed to making a difference in their community. Their leadership and philanthropy makes Fairfield County a better place to live and work for all, and we thank them for their efforts.”
