He is an expert in the use of computer-assisted auditing techniques and U.S. GAAP health care guidance.
“When it comes to the health care sector, nobody understands the complexity of the industry and its financial reporting needs like our team,” Solomon said. “We share a passion for delivering solutions and actionable reporting to our clients. I look forward to building on this expertise and helping to lead expanded efforts in our Health Care Practice offerings.”
