AC Lordi, a boutique accounting and management consulting firm, announced today that Bill Dawson will lead the firm’s Risk & Compliance service line (formerly “Risk Management”). Dawson will oversee offerings including internal audit, Sarbanes-Oxley, systems audit & consulting, regulatory compliance and enterprise risk management. He succeeds John Dorsam, who retired earlier this year but will remain involved on a part-time basis to assist with the transition.
“We are extremely fortunate to have someone with Bill’s expertise to oversee AC Lordi’s Risk & Compliance operations,” said AC Lordi CEO and Managing Principal Frank Lordi. “His knowledge and experience across the broad range of our service offerings, especially in internal audit, will be instrumental in continuing to build one of the premiere management consulting practices in the Philadelphia region.”
Since joining AC Lordi a year ago, Dawson has leveraged his strong background in accounting, reporting, audit and business consulting to lead the internal audit practice while overseeing various client engagements. Prior to joining the firm, he served as Vice President of Internal Audit, and then as Vice President of Corporate Income Tax, for a $2+ billion specialty apparel retailer. He also has over 18 years of Big 4 experience, including as an Audit Partner managing a portfolio of public and privately held consumer product, chemical manufacturing, aerospace and retail clients.
