Mike Wenos, President
I joined what is now Siemens PLM Software in late 2004 after a career in public accounting with a Big Four firm. I started the Internal Audit function, and co-sourced with Brown Smith Wallace for our international and domestic SOX and internal audit work. Initially, I used a Big 4 firm for the IT audit and controls testing for our global SAP environment. After the first year, I moved all the work to Brown Smith Wallace because they demonstrated their expertise and know-how. Our IT management appreciated the service improvement from Brown Smith Wallace’s more experienced and competent IT audit professionals. Although the nature of the projects we do with Brown Smith Wallace has evolved over the past 5 years, we continue to work with them because they combine high quality service with fair rates to deliver value. In short, it’s always quality work with no surprises.
