AssuranceMark, the Investors’ Consortium for Assurance

Samantha Ross was the founding Chief of Staff of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board and over 15 years contributed to building the world’s largest and most respected audit oversight institution and achieving long-term positive, incremental change to make audits more transparent and relevant to investors. She had a significant role in most of the PCAOB’s major policy initiatives, including development of the PCAOB’s Center for Economic Analysis. She also played a key role in developing a plan for a joint inspection regime among international audit regulators, which laid the foundation for the PCAOB auditor inspections worldwide. She founded AssuranceMark to continue to serve investors’ interest in high-quality, reliable reporting and assurance on material disclosures beyond the financial statements.
