Atlanta-based Aprio LLP (FY18 net revenue of $96.1 million) has hired Brett Williams and admitted him as a partner in the information assurance services group.
He will focus on serving the information risk and compliance needs of small to mid-market companies that are experiencing an increasing escalation of security compliance requests by providing attestation and certification reporting.
Dan Schroeder, PIC of the practice, says, “We can now leverage Brett’s expertise to grow our practice nationally and provide mid-market companies and their trading partners with the highest level of confidence that the appropriate measures are in place to protect their businesses.”
Williams joins Aprio from Grant Thornton where he served as the Southeast special attestation reporting practice leader. Williams has over 20 years of experience focused on business process and information technology controls, and he has served clients in a variety of industries.
“As businesses of all sizes continue to see an increased threat from cybersecurity-related activities, the work we are doing to protect these businesses is more important than ever,” he says.
