$1 billion entertainment company, Madison Square Garden, has named Joseph Yospe as senior vice president, controller, and chief accounting officer. In this role, Yospe will be primarily responsible for external financial reporting, accounting processes, accounting policies, and compliance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, as well as ensuring that the company has the appropriate control environment in place. He reports to Robert Pollichino, executive vice president and chief financial officer.

For the past 30 years, Yospe has held positions of increasing responsibility in external financial reporting. Most recently, he served as senior vice president, corporate controller, and chief accounting officer of ABM Industries, which he joined in October 2007. In that capacity, he was responsible for external financial reporting and the company's internal control environment while relocating the accounting functions from San Francisco to New York and Houston.

Previously, Yospe was vice president and assistant controller at the Interpublic Group of Companies from September 2004 to September 2007, where—among other responsibilities—he specialized in addressing technical accounting issues.
