Shareholder

Leading the firm's advisory & assurance group, Dave supports closely held businesses with audits, financial reporting and fraud analysis.

What is your area of focus?

I work within the advisory & assurance practice, primarily with privately-owned domestic companies or subsidiaries of larger foreign-owned and operated companies throughout Europe and Asia. Working closely with owners, chief financial officers, and plant managers gives me a deep understanding of clients’ business goals so that our firm can provide the right mix of technological and consulting support. I am focused on the fundamental practices and internal controls required to mitigate risk and, as a certified fraud examiner, help clients become better educated on the best practices to help prevent fraud.
