I am an experienced Accounting and Compliance professional with strong proficiency in business compliance support of Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) 404, Audit Standard 5, SAS 70 and internal controls. My background and experience has enabled me to develop subject matter expertise in the performance of SOX 404 risk assessments, documentation of critical processes, and conducting tests of controls. The performance of these roles have required me to present findings to Audit Committees and Board of Directors, and implement process improvement opportunities identified through the SOX 404 work. I also have experience with both EDGAR and SEC filing processes.
My Finance and Accounting career covers more than twenty years, and includes positions that have reported directly to the Chief Financial Officer. My duties have included responsibilities ranging from the preparation of an RFP and System Interface Document for bid by a Certified Public Accounting firm on a SAS 70 Attestation, serving as an interim Controller for a heavy machinery company, preparing the M-1 Book to Tax schedule, and functioning as the point of contact for client information for a company’s annual audit. I have also been in charge of a company’s risk management and insurance needs to ensure that corporate assets were protected and properly insured.
To accomplish the requirements of my positions, I have supervised and managed up to 23 direct reports with diverse staff types ranging from hourly claims auditors to financial analysts with CPA’s certificates. I have developed annual operating plans and shortened the cycle time of the month end close and actual vs. forecast reporting to Senior Level Management. I am a team player, as demonstrated by my successful contribution to a multi-department project that helped design, develop and test a new SAP Data Warehouse and Reporting Suite for a pharmacy benefit management company.
