LeaseQuery Names Grant Thornton Alum Technical Lease Accounting Manager

LeaseQuery, a provider of lease accounting software, hired Abdi Ali as technical lease accounting manager. Ali’s chief responsibility will be to provide LeaseQuery’s customers with an understanding of the current lease accounting standards (FASB Topic 840) and assist them with transitioning to the new ones that go into effect in 2019 (FASB Topic 842 and IFRS 16).

“We’re thrilled to welcome Abdi to our team,” said George Azih, LeaseQuery founder and CEO. “Our customers rely on us for guidance in complying with lease accounting regulations — both old and new. Abdi brings expertise that will help them navigate the complexities of the changing regulatory landscape.”

Ali began his career as an audit intern at Grant Thornton and soon after joined full time as an audit associate. While at Grant Thornton, he assisted in the audits of various publicly traded and privately held clients. Ali also has experience as a general ledger accountant from positions he held after his time at Grant Thornton.

“I’m excited about joining the team at LeaseQuery, especially at this time,” Ali said. “Not only is the regulatory environment changing, but the company is at a phenomenal stage in its growth. I’m really looking forward to working with our customers to help them prevent compliance issues.”
