Anne MarchettiI have 20 years of finance and accounting experience in both private industry and public accounting. Considered a Sarbanes-Oxley subject matter expert, I focus on the design, implementation, analysis and optimization of internal control systems and corporate governance programs. As a thought leader in this area, I developed a compliance methodology in conjunction with a delivery framework and have spoken at numerous conferences as well as published several articles on this particular subject. I have worked globally with both public and private entities in most industries as well as organizations of all sizes. I regularly interact with Big Four, middle market and local external audit firms as a liason on behalf of these organizations. In addition, I have authored 2 books entitled Beyond Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance – Effective Enterprise Risk Management and Sarbanes-Oxley On-going Compliance Guide.

As the Global Service Line Director – Governance and Risk Management Practice at Parson Consulting I worked with numerous clients on Sarbanes-Oxley compliance initiatives and frequently collaborated as well as presented to Board’s of Directors in regard to Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and Enterprise Risk Management. I leverage this experience with a unique blend of technical skills which include the management of ERP software implementations from a technology, process and accounting perspective. I have designed training programs for Board of Directors, Audit Committees, end users and consultants on various business software applications, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and ERM as well as conducted over 200 formal training seminars.
