Firm and clients to be served by Walsh’s governance, risk and compliance experience
WASHINGTON (September 15, 2016) – Nationally recognized accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) announced that Cassandra Walsh, CPA, has been promoted to director in the firm’s governance, risk and compliance practice.
“Cassandra has been a highly effective member of our governance, risk and compliance practice,” Todd Stokes, Baker Tilly’s office managing partner - D.C. metro area, said. “Her extensive experience in internal audit, operational and financial process improvements increases Baker Tilly’s value to our clients.” She joined the Baker Tilly team in June 2012 and has more than 25 years of experience advising clients on complex national and international projects.
Walsh specializes in enterprise risk assessment, business process analysis and re-engineering, internal controls analysis, compliance audits, and forensic investigations and management consulting. Client industries include public sector, higher education, not-for-profit, energy and utilities, government contracting and technology. Prior to joining Baker Tilly, she worked for an international firm and as an independent consultant.
Walsh takes a collaborative approach with clients on multi-faceted strategic issues. “We don’t come in and tell clients what to do,” she explained. “We work together to find the best solution for our clients and their organizations. What are our clients’ strengths or weaknesses? We analyze and work through issues and to help make better organizations.”
Walsh also dedicates energy and skills to her local community. She served eight years as vice president and president of parent teacher organizations (PTOs) and has served on community boards. She supported Baker Tilly’s participation in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Real Estate Games, an annual fundraiser hosted by the real estate community to support Type 1 diabetes research.
