Jeff Wilks new chair of BYU School of Accountancy

Marriott School of Management Dean Lee Perry announced the appointment of Jeff Wilks as chair of the Brigham Young University School of Accountancy. He assumed the position on Aug. 1, succeeding Steve Glover, who is now an associate dean for the Marriott School.

“Jeff is a talented teacher and scholar and brings unique professional experience as a former fellow of the Financial Accounting Standards Board,” Perry says. “Jeff is highly regarded in the school, and we are confident he will continue the outstanding leadership in the School of Accountancy.”

Wilks joined the Marriott School in 2000 and has been consistently recognized for his achievements in research and teaching, including the 2011 Marriott School Outstanding Teaching Award. Along with his classroom and research responsibilities, Wilks has worked as a consultant with the International Accounting Standards Board and as a project manager for the Financial Accounting Standards Board. 

“I am very excited to serve my colleagues in the School of Accountancy,” Wilks says. “There is no other accounting program in the country that has such outstanding students, dedicated alumni and collegial faculty and staff. I love being part of the SOA, and I consider myself lucky to follow in Steve’s footsteps and to serve as the director.” 

Glover joined the Marriott School in 1994, received the Marriott School's Outstanding Teaching Award in 2009 and served as chair of the SOA since 2012. Glover also served as president of the auditing section of the American Accounting Association for a year and has been an editorial board member of multiple academic journals. Glover was selected as one of Perry’s associate deans in July.

“I deeply respect Steve Glover and am grateful for his service to the SOA and the Marriott School,” Perry says. “I think so highly of Steve that I could not imagine a new Deans Office that didn’t include him.”

The Marriott School has nationally recognized programs in accounting, business management, public management, information systems, and entrepreneurship. Approximately 3,000 students are enrolled in the Marriott School’s graduate and undergraduate programs.
