Seth McDaniel, Managing Partner, joined PKF Frazier & Deeter in 2004 after leaving the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), where he served as an Associate Director. He brings over 22 years of public accounting experience to the firm and currently serves on the PKFI board of directors for North America. Seth’s areas of specialty include working with large and middle market companies in the public and private sector.
Seth’s credentials will lend credibility for F&D clients, as the rules affecting public companies slowly translate into more fiscal responsibility in the private arena. His experience encompasses working with the service, technology, healthcare, real estate and financial institution industries.
Seth’s career began at KPMG, where he worked until 1997, when he left to work on a specialized IPO transaction for a Georgia company. Prior to participating in the first inspections in the history of the PCAOB, he worked at Deloitte for several years.
At the PCAOB, Seth helped to develop the accounting practice inspection program that is in place today. Other responsibilities were to oversee the nationwide inspection of a Big 4 firm, as well as several small firms. He also was instrumental in the evolution of the small firm inspection program. Most recently in 2004, Seth was the first person promoted within the PCAOB inspections division to Associate Director, making him the youngest Associate Director in the organization’s history.
