Our Team

Working at the PCAOB

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board performs its mission of audit oversight with a dynamic team.

We rely on the skills of experienced auditors to perform the vital functions of inspecting registered accounting firms and setting the standards for audits and professional practice.

The international scope of our authority—covering almost 1,000 accounting firms in 90 jurisdictions outside the United States—requires special awareness of the PCAOB's role as a model for audit oversight.

Sharp legal minds and financial experts enable every aspect of the PCAOB's work, from standard setting and rule-making to enforcement and investigations.

Underpinning all of the PCAOB's efforts is a dedication to careful stewardship of our own resources and those of the firms and companies we affect. Top-notch economists support the PCAOB’s efforts to assure that the PCAOB’s operations, standards, and rules are not just cost effective but truly fulfill our goal to further the public interest in the preparation of informative, accurate and independent audit reports.
