Houston-based Briggs & Veselka Co. (FY18 net revenue of $41 million) has announced the admission of Sonny Brandtner and Lily Wang as shareholders in the consulting and audit departments, respectively.
Brandtner joined the firm in 2018 to provide internal audit, SOC and SOX rationalization services for large middle-market and small-cap public companies. He has worked at regional firms and is a former partner at Big 4 firm Deloitte. He has also held various senior-level financial or internal audit positions for private and public companies.
“Sonny has cultivated an excellent reputation in the market in the area of risk services, and as we continue to build our consulting services, he will be a valued member of the team in the risk area and in consulting in particular,” says Managing Shareholder Sheila Enriquez. “He has been successful in helping the firm move ‘up-market’ in the risk area, and we expect great things in the year to come and beyond.”
Wang recently joined Briggs & Veselka from a national firm, and brings extensive experience in the power and utilities, manufacturing and distribution, and retail industries. She has also been a member of the firm’s China group, which facilitates communication and provides inbound and outbound attest and due diligence services to companies with operations in China.
“As the firm continues to build on its core compliance services, Lily has been a demonstrated leader in the audit department,” Enriquez says. “Her technical skills, business acumen and outstanding people skills will serve her well as a shareholder of our firm.”
The firm has more than 300 professionals serving primarily middle-market clients from five offices in Texas – Houston, The Woodlands, Austin, San Antonio and El Campo.
