AAFA Announces Appointment of Jim Tagg of Trademark Recruiting as 2018-2019 President of the Board of Directors


The American Association of Finance and Accounting, or AAFA, is proud to announce the appointment of Jim Tagg as the 2018-2019 President of the Board of Directors.  A member of AAFA since 2001, Jim has demonstrated an unparalleled dedication to AAFA’s mission and is an exemplary leader within the executive recruitment industry.

Jim Tagg began his career in the executive staffing in Central Florida in 1988. Before founding AAFA’s Central Florida affiliate, Trademark Recruiting, he worked with the national recruiting firm Leahy and Co. as a Key Account Manager and eventually moved on to become Partner of Evan Thomas Global, LLC before starting his own company.  Mr. Tagg co-founded Trademark Recruiting in 2000 alongside three partners. They began working with the best companies in Florida and surrounding southeast states. In 2001, Trademark Recruiting became the Central Florida regional AAFA member allowing them access to forty offices across Central and North America. They work with startups to Fortune 50 companies.

As a result of Jim’s 30+ years experience working with employers and job seekers in the accounting and finance profession, we could not be more pleased with his election to the organization’s Executive Committee. As President, he will be responsible for overseeing AAFA’s membership and the organizational management of AAFA which includes our affiliates in both the US and Canada. He will be spearheading national AAFA conferences, press/media relations, the tactical and strategic vision of the organization as well as the continued development of new concepts to better support our membership.

Tagg is a graduate of Rollins College in Orlando, Florida where he studied Economics, Accounting, Finance and Law.

We would like to thank Jim Tagg for his commitment to the continued development of both accounting and finance hiring managers and job seekers. His experience and leadership will be an extremely beneficial addition to AAFA’s leadership team throughout the coming year.
