Mike Mitchell-Ovalles

Associate Director

Mike is a CPA with nearly 15 years of experience ranging from financial statement audits in public accounting across a variety of industries to Internal Audit and SOX/FDICIA compliance in financial services and banking.  He specializes in assessing financial/regulatory reporting risk and controls and identifying opportunities for improvement including enhancements needed to meet SOX requirements.

Mike loves to travel and experience the landscape and culture of new places.  He is a foodie, so sampling different cuisines is one of his favorite parts of traveling but he also enjoys trying new restaurants close to home.  On the weekend you can find Mike outside with his dogs or at home spending time with family and friends.
