Jenny Snyder I 2-10-16 I Day JOHNATHAN BAILEY SUMMARY On February the tenth, Jonathan Bailey spoke in our class. Johnathan is a Tax Manager as well as the Secretary and Treasurer for General Shale in their Chattanooga office. Johnathan has the CPA and CGMA certifications. He got his CPA while doing his grad school work at the University of Tennessee. He graduated with his M. Acc. with a concentration in Taxation in 1990. From there, he started out with Ernst and Young as a tax consultant. He then went to Eastman to become the Internal Tax Manager and after that he was at Alpha Natural Resources where he was the Director of Tax. In 2011, he finally ended up at General Shale. General Shale was founded in 1928 and is actually a subsidiary of Wienerberger AG, which is the largest manufacturer of bricks and located in Vienna, Austria. General Shale’s headquarters are in Johnson City, TN and they specialize in green building materials as well as being one of the largest brick manufacturers themselves. They produce up to 40 million bricks per year. Within that 40 million, there are 300400 different types of brick. General Shale does not adhere to GAAP and they do not have to answer to the SEC. They do, however, have financial reporting, fixed asset management, cost accounting, budgeting, and accounts payable departments. They do have an Internal Audit where someone from Vienna comes in twice a year. Johnathan also gave us some Accounting careers that we might like to go into. There are many options. There are the “Big 4” accounting firms, local firms, individual practitioners, government accounting, or one could even go the teaching route. It doesn’t matter what we plan on doing, Johnathan highly recommends getting a masters right out of undergrad. He also says that it’d be a good idea to go ahead and complete your CPA while in school. He harps on the fact that networking is a huge factor and has helped him to have some of the opportunities that he has Jenny Snyder I 2-10-16 I Day JOHNATHAN BAILEY SUMMARY had. All in all, his main focus was that your skill sets go with you to each job that you do; what you learn at one job will carry over with you for the rest of your life.
