Bill started his auditing career at a Big 4 accounting firm performing complex audits for clients in the highly-regulated banking and capital markets sectors. After several years of sharpening his technical expertise, Bill took his IT Audit knowledge to a global manufacturing firm to support their Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and intellectual property protection efforts. After spearheading audits in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia that addressed logical access, data integrity, and data warehouse processing, Bill joined Lurie to return to his roots in public accounting.
As a leader in Lurie’s Technology Consulting practice, Bill’s experience with different compliance frameworks (Statutory Audits, ISO, NIST, SOC 1/2/3, HIPAA Security and Privacy Rules, HITRUST) has combined with his business insight to support clients in the medical device, healthcare, SaaS, insurance, government, and outsourced development industries. Bill consistently advocates for his clients and has a proven track record of assisting in the renegotiation of contracts with excessive compliance requirements. Stemming from his knack at providing efficient solutions tailored to each client’s particular needs, Bill has been told he and his team provide so much value that it almost doesn’t feel like an audit. Almost.
When Bill is not managing compliance audits, you can find him rock climbing or traveling with his wife (sometimes both!), running, playing soccer, or heading to the lake to paddleboard with his Great Dane Albert. It’s a big paddleboard.
