Anand Maharudraiah

Get to know our team

Anand serves as the Director of Technical Accounting and Clean-up. In this role, he is accountable for the work of a dedicated team of Controllers who will staff Interim Controller engagements on a project and recurring engagement basis.  As a member of the Advisory Services team our Interim Controllers are sought out for their expertise in guiding mid and lower mid-market PE backed businesses through transitional environment bridging Client Executives; Client Staffs and Consero’s global teams.  While Consero has a demonstrated track record in delivering Implementation services to our clients, Anand is responsible for scaling the practice into an industry leading market position.

Prior to his role as Director of Technical Accounting & Clean-Up, Anand served as VP of Delivery Transformation for Consero, leveraging technology & process to drive efficiencies throughout the organization.

Anand has been part of Consero’s growth story from day one when the company was founded in 2006. He has played several key roles within the delivery organization before becoming the VP of delivery transformation. Prior to joining Consero, Anand worked with Fidelity for their payroll wing supporting their biggest client, Bank of America.

Anand earned a bachelor’s degree in Finance, and an MBA from the University of Bangalore.

Transformation today takes place at dizzying speeds, requiring a level of integration and alignment that many enterprises are not prepared to handle. Because many initiatives that once took five or six years to complete are now being implemented in a year or less, many organizations now need to manage mountains of information, compressed timeframes, and countless decisions that affect nearly all aspects of strategy and operations. The risk of failure is great, and I strongly believe the companies that can pull the disparate elements into alignment can achieve bold objectives, now and into the future."
