This is my story
Mr. Booth started his professional career in sales, and migrated to accounting first through working with two small CPA firms, and then through two decades of increasing responsible positions for high technology companies including internal audit, controllerships and Group Budget Manager for a Fortune 25 company. Mr. Booth joined Arthur Andersen in 1997 and helped establish the risk management practice in Boston managing major client engagements for an international technology firm and a large North American ski and resort organization.
After Andersen discontinued operations, Mr. Booth moved first to Huron Consulting Group, where he led strategic sourcing initiatives for numerous colleges and universities. Mr. Booth moved back into internal audit after four years of extensive travel, first doing risk assessments and Sarbanes Oxley work for local companies, before joining RSM McGladrey as the Boston Internal Audit leader. At McGladrey, he led major projects for a local university, Labor Union Trust Fund, investment firms, as well as special projects for other Boston clients and an outsourced Sarbanes Oxley engagement for a High technology company.
