PHILADELPHIA (October 2, 2018) – Jonathan T. Marks joined leading accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) as a partner in the firm’s specialized forensic litigation valuation services consulting practice.
Marks specializes in internal and regulatory investigations; governance matters; assessment, design and implementation of compliance programs; global fraud risk management; and compliance coordination and monitoring services for the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. He has led high-profile financial, accounting, compliance and due diligence investigations around the world relating to allegations of accounting irregularities, improper financial disclosures, fraud, non-compliance, corruption, bribery and data breaches. Marks has provided expert testimony on accounting, financial and internal control issues in commercial litigation matters and has appeared before the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Financial Industry Regulation Authority (FINRA), and the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) to present his findings.
“We are thrilled that Jonathan has joined our team,” Baker Tilly’s Forensic Valuation Services Team Lead Jack Williams said. “His depth of expertise in forensic investigations and anti-fraud matters as well as his diverse experience helping clients and their boards improve their governance structure will add tremendous value for our clients as we continue to grow our practice.”
As a partner at Baker Tilly, Marks will continue to conduct investigations, internal audits, governance reviews, global fraud risk assessments and build compliance and third party risk management programs for his clients, aligning also with the firm’s risk and internal audit services.
“The regulatory environment has changed,” Marks said. “The SEC, DOJ, other and enforcement agencies are demanding more and we must answer the call. Investigating is only part of what is expected. Today, we need to be able to assess risk, conduct root cause analysis, design and enhance internal controls, evaluate the effectiveness of internal audit and compliance and appraise the governance framework. I’m excited to be part of a team that has global depth and breadth so that we can help our clients address the risks facing their businesses.”
