Fuller Landau’s Ted Greenfield earns FCA Designation
It is with great pleasure that we wish to announce that Mr. Theodore (Ted) Greenfield, FCA has achieved the title of Fellow. Mr. Greenfield earned this honour due to his tremendous achievements in the community, and particularly for his life-long involvement with the various organizations of B’nai Brith and other non-profit organizations.
The purpose of the FCA is to formally recognize members whose achievements in the community have earned them distinction and who have brought honor to the profession. Ted Greenfield, through his tireless commitment and volunteer involvement, has without question done just that.
From a very young age Ted Greenfield has volunteered as a member of the community, largely through B’nai Brith, a Jewish human rights advocacy and community volunteer service organization, with whom Mr. Greenfield has been heavily involved and has held various leadership positions for over 60 years. He was recently elected Senior Vice-President of B’nai Brith International, representing B’nai Brith in over 50 countries.
Due to his background as a Chartered Accountant, Mr. Greenfield helped the organization put in place sound financial, personnel and management practices which have been an integral component of the organizations’ survival. With an annual budget of approximately 12 million dollars, in addition to the individual budgets for each branch, Mr. Greenfield felt that having proper budgeting processes in place was key to the organization’s success. This process involved working with the various divisions and teaching them the best ways to ensure that their money was well spent, that it was being spent responsibly, and that expenditures were made with the purpose of achieving the goals of the organization. With this he taught them the concept of budgetary planning in financial decision making and created an awareness of the need for self-sufficiency within each arm of the organization. At the same time, and throughout his years with the organization, he was also able to teach the various branches of the organization how to ensure that good management practices are in place, how to plan strategically and how to practice proper governance.
His lifelong community involvement has brought tremendous pride to the firm, and the extensive network of contacts he developed has been a great contributor to the firm’s growth.
Throughout his entire career, Mr. Greenfield has always represented himself as a Partner of Fuller Landau LLP, and still today as a Consultant. He acted as a coach and mentor to numerous Chartered Accountants within the firm, helping many of them achieve Partnership.
Fuller Landau is honored and privileged to have had the good fortune of having Mr. Greenfield as part of their team. His commitment to people and the profession are a beacon of light to us all during a period where morals and standards are constantly coming under scrutiny.
Ted Greenfield achieved the title of Fellow for 63 years of commitment and dedication to the community.
