Accounting professor receives award for research

On August 4, 2009, the American Accounting Association (AAA) awarded the Wildman Medal to Kelley Accounting Professor Leslie Hodder, along with her colleagues Mary Barth and Stephen Stubben, for their paper "Fair Value Accounting for Liabilities and Own Credit Risk." The paper was published in the May 2008 issue of The Accounting Review. This AAA award, which is sponsored by the Deloitte Foundation, was presented to the paper’s authors in the form of a medal and a monetary prize on at the 2009 AAA Annual Meeting held in New York City, New York.

Leslie Hodder is an Associate Professor and Ernst and Young Faculty Fellow at the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University. She began her accounting career in public accounting and has held a series of management positions in consulting and industry, including the position of Chief Financial Officer of a mid-size commercial bank in Southern California.

The Wildman Medal Award was founded in 1978 to commemorate John Wildman and to encourage research relevant to the professional practice of accounting to which much of Mr. Wildman’s life was devoted. More information about this award is available online at http://aaahq.org/awards/award1.htm.
