Major Projects

  • Anthony has led several co-source and outsourced internal audit engagements. On the full outsourced engagements, Anthony has served as the Chief Audit Executive, reporting directly to the Audit Committee chair. In the co-sourcing engagements, Anthony has partnered with the Chief Audit Executive in developing and executing an annual internal audit plan.

  • Anthony has led several HIPAA engagements for a variety of healthcare clients. Several of these engagements have served as the basis for creating a risk aware compliance organization with the capabilities to assess and report on compliance with the HIPAA regulatory requirements.

  • Anthony has led a number of revenue assurance projects resulting in quantification of several million in annual opportunity. In one situation, a client was facing SEC scrutiny due to their revenue recognition process. Anthony and his team were able to create new model that was both defensible with the SEC and provided the client greater insight into future revenue opportunities.

  • Anthony has been involved in many large scale data analytic projects. In one example, Anthony led a team in creating a risk score card for 70+ locations throughout the U.S. The scorecard was developed out of a multiple terabyte data base and ultimately provided the client with a clear and concise risk picture of their remote locations.
