Kim’s ability to relate accounting terminology in an easy to understand style has contributed enormously to his successful career. His ability to assess a client’s needs, and communicate them effectively, have made him a client favorite for the past 20 years.

The AICPA conducted a study of the “Characteristics and Skills of the Forensic Accountant”. The results accurately describe Kim’s personality and qualifications. Here are a few excerpts from the executive summary:

  • The marketplace requires the forensic accountant to possess a different skill set from the traditional accountant.
  • The survey found that 60% of more of the attorneys respondents ranked being analytical, detailed-oriented and ethical as essential traits and characteristics.
  • Attorneys ranked effective oral communication as their top core skill for forensic accountants and that was followed by the forensic accountant’s ability to simplify the information.
  • More than 80% of the attorney respondents identified inability to simplify the information and ineffective oral communication skills as the top-two reasons why forensic accountants are ineffective, which is consistent with their top 5 ranking core skills for forensic accountants.

The report is available here.
