Class Captain 2018 – Matt Trammell, Protiviti

Polaris Alumni Board Alumni Stories

Matt Trammell works in Denver as a consultant at Protiviti. 

Typical work day: Assist in providing Sarbanes Oxley compliance services for Pre-IPO, Year One and on-going SOX engagements in the gas and oil and internet service industries. Analyze client infrastructure, processes, and policies from which needed controls and risks are identified. Perform control testing for key finance and accounting business processes to evaluate operating effectiveness of internal controls

How did I come across this opportunity: leveraged my network through a relationship with the former president of AKPsi

How did Eller prepare me: Eller absolutely prepared me with the technical knowledge needed for this job. But even more so taught me how to interact with others in a personable and professional manner, how to manage my time, how to step up to the plate and take on new challenges; Eller taught me how to play the corporate game which I believe is mainly soft skill based.

Favorite Eller memory: Eller Global Cohort to Brazil/Winning Case Comp in Brazil
