Protiviti is a global consulting firm whose name is a
combination of words, including "professionalism," "proactivity,"
"independence" and "integrity." Founded as a subsidiary of
Robert Half in 2002, in the days leading up to the passage of the
Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the firm started out with more than 700
professionals from Arthur Andersen's U.S. internal audit and
business risk consulting practices. Today, with more than 3,400
professionals operating out of more than 70 offices in over 20
countries, the firm serves clients in a broad swath of industries,
including consumer products/retail, energy, financial services,
government, healthcare and life sciences, industrial
products/manufacturing, transportation, hospitality, private
equity, and technology, media and communications.
After its founding, the firm expanded at a rapid
pace, growing to the globe-spanning organization it is today.
Its experts, specializing in risk and advisory services, help
clients by providing the necessary business process and technology
skills to address challenges related to finance, operations,
technology, governance, risk and internal audit. Protiviti's
internal audit expertise spans a variety of areas, including
internal audit activities on a fully outsourced basis and working
with existing internal audit functions to supplement teams lacking
adequate staff or skills.
Over the years, the firm has served more than 60 percent of the
companies on the FORTUNE 1000® and FORTUNE Global
