“From its inception, Protiviti’s Advisory Board has been designed to assist Protiviti and our clients with anticipating and adapting to change,” said Joseph Tarantino, Protiviti president and CEO. “Julia’s insights on the global economy and her monetary policy experience will play an important role in helping Protiviti and our clients interpret and address economic developments.”
