Located in New York, he has experience working with financial institutions to support their governance, regulatory and internal controls frameworks. He is an accomplished risk and controls professional that works with asset managers, banks, and broker-dealers.


Charmone has primarily focused on governance, risk, and compliance services, performing co-sourced and outsourced internal audits, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) readiness assessments and consulting, IPO Readiness, risk assessments, controls-based investigations, compliance audits, IT application controls (ITAC) reviews, and external quality assurance reviews (EQAR).

One of Charmone’ s greatest satisfactions is witnessing the success of his colleagues; he loves mentoring the next generation of GT professionals to assist them in finding and following their passion.
