Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 18 Jan 2015

Quite a few changes this week, considering by now everyone should be neck deep in year end close. I hadn’t heard of any of these companies previously, but did find through an interesting technique called “research” that HNI Corporation is the 2nd largest manufacturer of office furniture in North America. So, according to my “research,” there’s a good chance the beat up chairs in your conference room or the gray cubicle walls that greet you each morning, come from an HNI company.
