Miami Business School alumnus Frank Gonzalez (MBA ’95) was elected second vice chair of the Orange Bowl Committee (OBC) during the organization’s annual elections in February. Gonzalez is the managing principal for the Miami office of MBAF, Certified Public Accountants.

"As someone who was born and raised in Miami, I grew up going to the Orange Bowl game and festivities, and as I embarked on my career I worked alongside Committee members allowing me to see the great impact this organization has,” said Gonzalez. “The Orange Bowl is so much more than the game many of us fondly remember, and it has become synonymous with youth sports across South Florida.”

Gonzalez has served the OBC on the executive committee of the board of directors as treasurer for the last four years. He has been a Committee member since 2008 and has served in leadership roles on a number of OBC subcommittees including chair of the finance, audit, investments, compensation and legacy gifts committees. He also has participated on the football, strategic relations, sales strategy, human resources, team host, media host and youth football committees.

“The Committee behind the Orange Bowl is comprised of leaders of the business community at the top of their fields, who all share a common mission to give back to the communities we call home, and it is that common drive that has allowed us to accomplish so much."

Gonzalez is the principal-in-charge of the audit department at MBAF, and leads the firm’s Financial Institutions practice. As principal-in-charge of the audit department, Frank has full oversight of the firm’s audit practice in all offices, including the execution of processes and quality control, maintaining the department’s standards and ensuring the best practices among his team.

Frank is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, is a past president of both the Cuban-American Certified Public Accountants and South Florida Banking Institute, and a past board member of both the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Alliance of M&A Advisors.

Among the civic organizations he is involved with, he is co-chair of the United Way of Miami-Dade Tocqueville Society, treasurer of CINTAS Foundation and a board member of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and Area Stage Company.
