David Recchion, MBA, CEPA

Partner-in-Charge, Enterprise Risk Management at Aprio

Who I work with

As Partner-in-Charge of Aprio’s Enterprise Risk Management group, I serve clients across a broad variety of industries including professional services, manufacturing, retail, ecommerce, technology and consumer electronics. I partner with C-level executives, business owners and directors of audit whose businesses are facing the four common indicators that dictate the need for risk management support:

  • High-growth or overperformance
  • Increasingly complex business models
  • Underperformance or adverse events
  • Plans to transfer ownership within 5-10 years

My specialty

I partner with clients to help them identify and mitigate strategic, financial, compliance and operational risks before they impact their organizations. I leverage more than 30 years of consulting experience and risk-based advisory expertise with Fortune 500 companies to create risk management strategies that include:

  • Risk assessments
  • Internal audit outsourcing
  • Sarbanes Oxley
  • Internal controls
  • Succession planning
  • Operational improvement consulting.

Some unique things about me

  • Before joining Aprio, I founded SeeRisk Management Advisors, a risk management firm based in High Point, North Carolina – acquired by LBA Haynes Strand in 2016.
  • I spent 12+ years at Ernst & Young (EY) where I helped develop EY’s risk advisory services strategy and managed strategic client relationships for Fortune 100 clients.
  • I graduated from University of Houston with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Organizational Behavior & Management after transferring from Purdue University.
  • I earn my MBA from Case Western Reserve University.

What I do when I am not at work

I enjoy travel and my favorite place to visit is Italy. My professional and community affiliations include membership in the North Carolina Trucking Association. I previously served as Board Chair of the High Point Christian Academy, The Jeff Murrow Foundation and the American Red Cross.
