He is often engaged by corporate clients on a variety of accounting advisory matters, including the application of accounting and auditing standards, operational topics such as internal reporting and the structure and strategy of the finance organization, evaluating financing alternatives and related reporting, planning for and evaluating the impact and disclosure of transactions, the application and response to Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations and investigations, financial restatements, accounting litigation and disputes, adopting new accounting standards, and responding to auditor requests.
These projects have been in, as well as outside, the U.S. covering multiple complex accounting topics including among others revenue recognition, business combinations, consolidation, impairment, stock-based compensation, capitalized software and development costs, and financial reporting disclosures. He is engaged by counsel representing companies and board of director committees to conduct internal investigations in connection with subpoenas, government inquiries, and whistleblower allegations concerning accounting and financial reporting fraud and misappropriation of assets. He also assists with materiality assessments, internal control and remediation measures.
Prior to joining FTI Consulting, Todd was a partner at Deloitte providing consulting, accounting and auditing services to companies ranging from start-ups to large multinational businesses. Todd has extensive experience evaluating SEC reporting matters and an in-depth knowledge of the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board and accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (U.S. GAAP). Todd has focused his time in the technology, media & telecommunications industries, including related sectors in energy, consumer business, life sciences, and retail. He has worked extensively in areas common in these industries including initial and secondary public and private offerings, exit or financing arrangements, compliance with Regulation S-X Rule 3-05 and 3-09, Article 11 pro-forma financial statements, carve-outs, and cross-border transactions.
In addition to his client service responsibilities, Todd served a rotation as a Clearing Partner in Deloitte’s National Office where he focused his time on attest risk management matters, including potential fraud, investigative, enforcement, or other matters impacting clients, policies governing cross border matters, and general accounting and risk matters, often addressing the most difficult issues faced by Deloitte’s corporate clients. He also spent seven years, based out of New York and London, advising large corporations on the application of the SEC’s rules and regulations, US GAAP, and International Financial Reporting Standards in a multi-jurisdictional setting where more than one set of rules and regulations apply.
Todd is passionate about the fundamental role inclusion plays in accounting and finance, and the development of environmental, social and governance sustainable practices, both areas in which he has served in multiple roles throughout his career. He has participated in numerous speaking panels and other presentations regarding accounting topics with his clients and is solely focused on serving their accounting and advisory short and long-term needs through his practice.
