Houston-based Weaver (FY19 net revenue of $141.1 million) announces that former PCAOB executive Patrick Brown has joined the firm and been admitted as a partner in the quality and risk management team.
Brown will be based in the firm’s Dallas office and will focus on assurance and advisory services. Brown was previously an executive leader and associate director for inspections at the PCAOB, where he spent close to a decade performing regulatory oversight of public company audits.
At Weaver, he will work with firm leaders to refine quality assurance processes and help ensure that audit services meet established standards.
“As Weaver continues to grow nationwide and expand our public company audit practice, Patrick will help us maintain the quality our clients, markets and regulators expect,” says CEO and MP John Mackel. “His experience at the PCAOB and as a Big 4 audit leader will add depth to our QRM processes.”
