Houston-based Briggs & Veselka (FY16 net revenue of $35.4 million) welcomed Sonny Brandtner as senior director in the risk advisory practice. Brandtner has more than 30 years’ experience in industry and in public accounting, providing internal audit, risk advisory and process improvement consulting experience in the energy, health care, restaurant and financial services industries.

“The firm’s market reputation is first rate among clients and referral sources, and it was a pleasant surprise over the course of our conversations with leadership to hear not only the size of the firm, but the scope of services that in my opinion, rival any regional firm,” says Brandtner.

“As the firm expands its value-added services to help our growing clients address and navigate through new and different risks, Sonny will be a valued resource in helping solve – or avoid – the issues oftentimes associated with growth,” says Sheila Enriquez, leader of the advisory practice.

“His presence will help expand our evolving internal audit, SOX, and routine accounting processes through use of robotic process automation. And Sonny’s deep experience in all four segments of the energy value chain will provide a valuable resource to our energy clients, as well as other OFS, upstream, midstream and downstream companies in the region.”
