How Mike is building a better working world
As a father, trust is important to Mike – both giving it and earning it. As an auditor, trust is central to his drive to anticipate and independently assess risk. For the capital markets to build confidence in the ability to create sustainable, long-term value, independent assurance plays a critical role.
Through his work, Mike has gained a strong appreciation for the confidence high-quality assurance can provide to investors, the benefits that assurance can generate for the public interest, and the dire consequences when quality is lacking.
