By the time he was 30, Larry Katzen made partner at Arthur Andersen, enjoying a fast-paced rise through the ranks as the firm grew in size and renown.
But It came crashing down in 2002 when Arthur Andersen was indicted based on accusations related to scandals at Enron. With the firm’s survival in question, Katzen moved quickly to encourage employees to carefully complete all remaining assignments.
Now in his new book You Thought Accountants Were Boring - My Life Inside Arthur Andersen, Katzen takes an inside look into how one of the world's most historically important accounting firms became fodder for the government’s prosecution of Enron.
It's good to talk.
