Who I work with

I work closely with CEOs, CFOs and managers of multinational companies with $50M+ in revenue. My clients are mainly foreign-owned subsidiaries in the United States that need accurate financials and advisory work to report to their parent companies. I aim to help those I work with in solving cross-border transaction needs, bridge international relationships for a successful business, and provide assurance to investors in a multifaceted cultural environment.

My specialty

I specialize in advising Korean-speaking clients to provide business strategy and support to be successful in their operations in the United States. I help multinational clients reduce risk and bridge cross-cultural gaps to achieve their business objectives. I spend most of my time advising clients on cross-border transactions. My industry expertise is in the Electric Vehicles supply chain, technology, energy trade, manufacturing and distribution. Prior to joining Aprio, I received a significant amount of experience working alongside various Fortune 500 companies.

My specialties include:

  • Audit, US GAAP and IFRS financial reporting services
  • Internal control optimization for publicly traded companies for J-SOX and K-SOX
  • Tariff analysis and review for US subsidiaries
  • Global Accounting Systems Implementation (i.e. SAP FI CO)
  • Strategic business advisory services and project management
  • Cross-border investments, local economic development, and site selection (state incentives review)
