Experience

Bill joined Frazier & Deeter in 2005, after leaving the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) where he served as an Inspection Leader.  He brings more than 19 years of public accounting experience to the assurance department.  His areas of specialty include working with large and middle-market companies in the public and private sectors.

Bill works primarily in the energy, manufacturing, construction, and financial services industries.  In addition, Bill has extensive experience with complex accounting topics such as SEC reporting, derivatives, leases, debt restructuring, foreign companies, business combinations, and impairment of long-lived assets.

Bill started his career with Coopers & Lybrand in 1990, where he worked until 2002, when he left to join the Capital Markets Risk and Accounting Advisory group at Deloitte.  While in this group, Bill specialized in assisting his clients with complex accounting and reporting issues for SEC companies, primarily in the energy and manufacturing industries.

Bill joined the PCAOB in January 2004, prior to the start of the first full-scope inspections of registered public accounting firms.  At the PCAOB, he helped to develop the training program for full-scope inspections and the inspection methodology for audits of internal control over financial reporting.  He also wrote the inspection guidance for derivative accounting and auditing areas that is in place today.  Other responsibilities were to serve as issue consultant to inspection teams for complex accounting and auditing issues.  Bill led and participated in the inspections of several local firms throughout the Southeast US and one of the Big Four Firms.

On January 1, 2007, Bill was admitted as an audit partner and appointed the head of the Quality Control function for Frazier & Deeter's assurance services department.  In addition, Bill leads the firm's Accounting and Risk Advisory Services practice which specializes in assisting large and mid-size public company clients with complex accounting and financial reporting issues.
