Formation of EisnerAmper Consulting Services Group Announced Jim Mack Appointed Partner-in-Charge.
July 07, 2011
EisnerAmper, one of the nation’s leading audit, tax and business advisory firms, announced today the formation of its new Consulting Services Group, to be led by James (Jim) Mack.
Regulated industries including public companies as well as banks, insurance companies and alternative finance entities such as most hedge funds and broker dealers, face increased levels of government oversight and intervention. The requirement for companies to plan ahead for myriad new federal and state rules; to create and publicize risk avoidance programs and develop affordable and effective risk mitigation strategies has never been greater. As a direct result, company CEOs, chief financial and risk officers are under pressure from their boards and shareholders to have programs in place to comply with, among others, Dodd Frank, Sarbanes-Oxley and the requirements governing internal controls (SSAE 16).
“Risk management has never been more complex, Jim Mack says. “Our clients and their boards are challenged with keeping current with emerging regulations, and as a result routine reviews and process checks have never before been more critical”.
Among the primary services offered by EisnerAmper Consulting Services are: Enterprise Risk Management; Internal Audit and Controls, Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance; Pre-IPO Readiness; Finance Function Transformation and Technology Risk, including Privacy and Data Security. As Jim Mack observes, “Many of these services have existed for years but in the current environment of reputational and regulatory risk, coupled with a rocky recovery from a severe recession, the need for these services by regulated companies is now enhanced and very real.”
In making the announcement of the new Group, EisnerAmper’s Chief Executive Officer, Charly Weinstein said that “Jim Mack, with his 25 years of client service experience, is a seasoned professional with extensive expertise advising senior executives and Boards of Directors on how to navigate emerging accounting and regulatory rulemaking. Jim has led audit engagements for companies in various stages of evolution, from start-ups to Fortune 50 entities and with private, public and alternative ownership structures. Under Jim’s leadership our new Consulting Services Group is particularly well suited for the public and highly regulated industries we serve.”
