Florida Gov. Rick Scott appointed Kaufman Rossin’s Adrian Alfonso, CPA, as chair of the Florida Early Learning Advisory Council (ELAC) in recognition of his work as chair of the Early Learning Coalition of Miami-Dade/Monroe.
As chair of the Early Learning Coalition of Miami-Dade/Monroe since 2013, Alfonso has helped provide early care and education to more than 50,000 children and their families in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. Alfonso will bring the same focus and commitment to children’s education across the state of Florida in his new role as chair of the ELAC.
“Serving on the board of the Early Learning Coalition of Miami-Dade/Monroe has shown me the importance of providing quality early learning programs for all children,” Alfonso said. “I’m honored to take on this role with the Florida Early Learning Advisory Council and continue providing children with opportunities to learn and develop.”
ELAC includes private and public-sector leaders who bring business and community-focused perspectives to early learning. The council leverages partnerships and resources to support workforce development through local access to quality care for working families and provide education to young children.
Alfonso is a tax director at Kaufman Rossin, one of the top 100 CPA and advisory firms in the U.S. He manages engagements for high net worth individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates and trusts.
He represents clients before the Internal Revenue Service, Florida Department of Revenue and other state agencies, and performs tax research and planning for clients on federal and state issues. In addition, he supervises personnel on various tax engagements, and offers tax consulting and advisory services.
Alfonso is also a member of the Christopher Columbus High School Advisory Board, serving on the executive and finance committee.
