Sheri Boscaro

Sheri Boscaro, CPA, is the Executive Director for Accounting Excellence in the Orfalea College of Business at California Polytechnic State University. She joined Cal Poly in January 2015 after having spent 16 years working in both public accounting and industry firms.

Sheri will be the main liaison between the key external stakeholders of the accounting program and the Orfalea College of Business. She will be responsible for building external support for the accounting program’s goals and bolstering relationships. Alongside Accounting Area Chair Doug Cerf, she will work directly with the college’s Accounting Advisory Board to help evolve Cal Poly’s accounting program in step with growing industry demand for quality accounting talent.

Sheri is assisting in the accounting area’s goal of graduating 200 accounting students, while ensuring that Cal Poly remains a university of choice for recruiting accounting professionals. To accommodate more students, additional support is needed to increase the number of faculty.

Sheri will also play a critical role in connecting accounting alumni to the accounting program to ensure there is always a direct link between the program and industry. Alumni involvement and support is tantamount to the success of the program.

Sheri began her career in public accounting at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Orange County before working in industry as a Controller for a public company and CFO of a privately held company. After moving to San Luis Obispo, Boscaro led the financial statement assurance department as audit manager of Longcrier & Associates CPAs. Most recently she served as a chief financial officer.
