Round and round and round…

Nearly four years ago, I grabbed a horse and hopped on the Big4 Auditor Carousel. Over the years, there were nuggets like Ventas and the Scott London/KPMG fiasco, but mostly it was run of the mill auditor changes. KPMG out, PwC in. EY resigns, and Deloitte takes their place. Where am I going with this? I’m jumping off the Carousel; no more Big4 auditor change posts. It’s time to move on.

I learned a lot, had some fun, and met many wonderful people in the process. Thank you for your support.

All the best,

John
