FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Decosimo Financial Analyst, Andy Lipscomb, CPAâ€¢ABV, was honored today by the TSSAA (Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association) with the Distinguised Service Award.
Each year, Andy calculates the statistical probability of every contending team in the region for the state football playoffs. "It's an invaluable tool", says TSSAA Executive Director Ron Carer, "I don't know what we would do without his help."
Additionally, Andy was presented with the Southeast Tennessee Placement Consortium's Disabled Employee of the Year Award. Diagnosed with a mild form of autism known as Asperger's Syndrome, Andy understands the difficulties facing many people who are considered 'disabled'. "It took me over a year to get my first job after college", he said. "I hope this helps people understand its okay to have disabled people in the workplace. Just because you are classified as disabled doesn't mean you don't have value."
Nowhere is Andy's value more recognized than in Decosimo's Corporate Finance practice where he has worked for the past nine years. He graduated magna cum laude from Vanderbilt University with a degree in mathematics after graduating from Baylor High School (Chattanooga, Tennessee) in 1990. He is a Certified Public Accountant and an Accredited Business Valuation professional.
