Ireland San Filippo announces promotion of Damon Lewis to audit partner-in-charge
Ireland San Filippo, LLP (ISF), a San Francisco Bay Area leader in audit, tax and business process consulting, today announced that Damon Lewis has been appointed the Firm's Audit & Accounting Partner-in-Charge.
Lewis has over fifteen years of public accounting experience and has most recently led the firm's Technology Assurance & Advisory Group (TAAG), which provides client-focused, process-based audit and financial review services to venture-backed technology companies and venture capital firms.
Lewis takes over from Ernie Rossi, who served in the role for the prior three years, and who will continue to serve on the firm's Executive Committee. "This is a great move for Ireland San Filippo," said Rossi. "Damon is a visionary leader, and is beyond passionate about our profession, our clients and our people. He epitomizes our firm values of inclusiveness, teamwork, integrity and quality."
Lewis commented that "Ernie has successfully led our department through some significant changes in the past few years: going paperless, the refinement of our industry practices, and the enhancement and implementation of our world-class audit approach. It is a pleasure to take on the role at this important time in our firm's history, and I'm looking forward to building on these past successes."
Ireland San Filippo was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area. With offices in San Mateo, San Jose, Fremont, and Morgan Hill, CA, Ireland San Filippo employs over 125 people.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
