Moss Adams Poaches Someone From PwC and Issues a Press Release, Part I

Nothing new to report on the recent data breach at Moss Adams, but here’s some MA news we missed last month during our holiday lull: They got a guy from PwC.

Jason Emmons is now a partner at Moss Adams, and according to his LinkedIn profile, he’s been providing services to customers in a professional manner since he was in elementary school:

I was born in San Francisco and have been delivering professional services my entire life starting with a paper route at age 10, laundry service at age 12, and McDonald’s at age 15 where I finished my apprenticeship in selling and delivering services.

Now instead of slinging newspapers and Big Macs, he’s slinging professional risk services.

He has been consulting in the information technology field for over 20 years. Emmons specializes in business development, internal controls design and implementation, Sarbanes-Oxley 404 implementation and attestation, data analysis, fraud identification, information protection consulting and more.

Hmmm, me thinks his experience in information protection might come in handy as Moss Adams beefs up those security protocols so no more clients have to worry about their names and Social Security numbers falling into the wrong hands.

Before going to Moss, Emmons was a managing director at P. Dubs for nearly five years where he was tasked to “attract, retain and lead a San Diego based team to sell and deliver more than 20,000 hours of professional risk services per year,” he said on LinkedIn.

He also spent 18 years working at Deloitte, including a three-year stint as the firm’s leader of enterprise risk services in Austria. During that time, Emmons co-founded the first English-speaking Rotary Club in Vienna.
