Huntsman Press Release

LOGAN, UT - A man who spent nine years trying to convince the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that Bernie Madoff was operating a Ponzi scheme will speak on the Utah State University campus at the 37th Annual Partners In Business Conference on Oct. 24.

Frank K. Casey, an investment banker with CP Baker & Co., was one of five people dubbed the “Fox Hounds” for their collective efforts to blow the whistle on Madoff. Casey will be a keynote speaker at the Jon M. Huntsman School’s Partners In Business Accounting Conference at 8 a.m. in the Eccles Conference Center on the USU campus.

Casey is frequently asked to speak on how the Madoff fraud unveiled financial industry due-diligence failures and regulatory problems. Madoff was sentenced in 2009 to 150 years in prison for operating what the “New York Times” called the “largest, longest and most widespread Ponzi scheme in history.”

The conference is also to feature James H. Quigley, who served as the CEO of Deloitte Touche & Tohmatsu Limited from 2007 to 2011 and retired as a senior partner from Deloitte U.S. in June 2012. Quigley graduated from the Huntsman School of Business with a bachelor’s degree in accounting in 1974. He is scheduled to speak at 11 a.m.

Quigley was named by “Accounting Today” as one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting” for three consecutive years. Recognized within the business community, he has testified before the House Committee on Financial Services about reducing the likelihood of fraud and restoring investor confidence in the United States. Utah State University recognized him with an honorary doctor of business degree in 2008 and the Huntsman School honored him with a Professional Achievement Award in 1989.

The conference will also feature Greg Poulsen, senior vice president and chief strategy officer of Intermountain Healthcare; John Keyser, a partner and the national director of assurance services for McGladrey L.L.P.; Edward Karl, vice president - taxation, of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants; Marc A. Gardiner, chief executive officer, IASeminars; Nona Donahue, director Deloitte Tax L.L.P.; Ryan Dent, partner in PricewaterhouseCoopers’s banking and capital markets sector; and Jeffrey Doyle, the George S. Eccles Chair in Capital Markets Research in the School of Accountancy at the Huntsman School of Business.
