Patti Named CAQ's Senior Director of Professional Practice, Policy & Research


Allison M. Patti joined the Center for Audit Quality for a one-year fellowship as senior director of Professional Practice, Policy & Research.

 

A partner at Deloitte LLP and a former professional accounting fellow in the SEC’s Office of the Chief Accountant, Patti will help guide the CAQ’s member services, professional practice and public policy activities.

 

She is the second participant in the CAQ’s professional practice fellowship program, which is conducted in collaboration with the CAQ’s member firms. She succeeds the inaugural CAQ fellow, Josh K. Jones of Ernst & Young LLP, who assisted her during her transition.

Prior to joining the SEC, she spent 10 years at Deloitte, most recently serving as a technical consultant to engagement teams and clients in complex accounting and financial reporting matters.
