Joe began his career in 1991 with Ernst & Young LLP as a staff auditor, primarily working on clients in the health care, manufacturing and banking industries. In 1995, he left E&Y to join General Signal Corporation (now SPX Corporation) as a senior internal auditor. Joe traveled extensively, performing financial audits for a variety of the company’s subsidiaries, in the U.S., Great Britain and Europe. In September 1996, he moved to Asheville to take over the senior financial analyst position with a division of General Signal (SPX) called General Laboratory Equipment (now known as Thermo Scientific).
In early 1999 Joe joined the accounting firm of Crisp Hughes Evans, LLP (now known as Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLP) as an Audit Senior and was later promoted to Manager, where he performed audit, review and compilation services for clients in the fields of health care, manufacturing, local governments and performed employee benefit plan audits.
In early 2002, Joe accepted an opportunity to join a small, local firm and become an equity owner. The firm continues to exist today as Goldsmith Molis & Gray, PLLC, where Joe serves as the head of the assurance department, performing audits, reviews, compilations and agreed-upon procedure engagements for our clients. He is also involved in the firm's administration.
We congratulate Joe on his achievement.
