Tammy Straus has 25 years of experience in public accounting in acquisition due diligence, auditing, technical accounting consulting, and securities litigation support.  She has extensive experience managing SEC engagements, including initial and secondary public offerings in energy, construction, manufacturing/distribution, and financial services.
Ms. Straus also provides accounting assistance to internal and external clients on complex financial services issues such as revenue recognition, derivatives, leasing, and convertible financing.  She manages risk to clients by identifying potential accounting issues in clients’ proposed transactions.  Of particular note is a three-month project Ms. Straus performed in Korea to help convert the financial statements of a major bank from Korean GAAP to U.S. GAAP so it could file with the SEC in the U.S. 
As a director in transaction services at a Big Four firm and in her current position, Ms. Straus has led dozens of financial due diligence engagements in both domestic and international markets in a variety of industries, including manufacturing/distribution, construction, financial services, and technology.  Her diligence clients are primarily financial and strategic buyers seeking information on targets’ quality of earnings, future cash flow items, and critical issues that could affect the purchase price or create opportunities to capture value going forward.
Building on her experience in diligence and her strong audit background, Tammy spent four years performing securities litigation support, where she assisted law firms in understanding the accounting issues and potential audit problems in SEC securities litigation cases. 
While working for several years as a trader of crude oil and petroleum products in the spot and futures markets, prior to becoming a CPA, Ms. Straus lived a year in Geneva, Switzerland and traveled extensively throughout Europe.  Ms. Straus then started and ran a small business until she entered graduate school, where her team won a national business plan competition based on a product she created.
Ms. Straus has a Master degree in Accounting from The University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor of Science from Cornell University.
