  1. I am a CPA and I have an MBA with a specialization in international business. I spent the majority of my career in a multi-national telecommunications company in the finance organization (domestic and international). I have become obsessed with bridge and think Bridge Base is “the best thing since sliced bread.” I am interested in the position.

  2. I an another retired CPA. I spent the last 23 years of my working career as CFO for a Wall Street hedge fund. I would be interested in a part time position. As an aside, I have 4500 master points.

  3. I am another retired CPA that would be interested, but not full time. Might you consider splitting the job between two or even three retirees?

  4. Hello....I am a CPA in Florida. I have a CGMA and an MBA as well. 10+ years in public accounting and prepared tax returns, completed audits, compilations, reviews, etc.

  5. Ditto of Barry's comment. I am also in my upper 70's and a CPS with over 50 yrs experience and was a Finance Director for Saudia Arabia back in the 70's.
    Best of luck in your search. Great site, I enjoy my leisure time now and will leave future financial battles to the younger generation.

  6. A few years too late.
    I meet most of your requirements plus was also a member of the NYS bar. At seventy six retired in Delaware and enjoying life. Do enjoy your website. Good luck in your search.
