GBQ is proud to announce that Jeffrey W. Harden has joined the firm as a Senior Manager in our Assurance Practice.
Prior to joining the firm, Jeff was a Director within Battelle Memorial Institute’s Financial Planning & Analysis department with emphasis on corporate finance, venture investments, and Battelle’s science and technology (S&T) portfolio.
Jeff began his career at Ernst & Young and spent 10 years serving clients in the automotive, manufacturing, retail and software industries. In addition to financial statement audit services, Jeff specializes in internal control over financial reporting, including compliance with Sarbanes Oxley, PCAOB regulatory standards, and the COSO framework.
“One of GBQ’s primary initiatives is to attract the best talent for our firm. We are excited to have Jeff join GBQ. He has over 10 years of public accounting experience, performing a range of services for middle market companies, as well as large public companies. His time at Battelle has given him a different perspective, and when combined with his public accounting experience, will provide our clients that different perspective,” said Paul Anderson, Director of Assurance Services.
