Luiza Romero serves as Auditchain’s Product Manager.
Luiza worked at Ernst & Young, LLP (EY) for eleven years, initially in Brazil in tax consulting and since 2013 in the US as part of EY’s global tax practice. Prior to joining EY, Luiza worked in the Brazilian IRS during the early days of the digital government implementation in Brazil. She has two Bachelors, one in Law and one in Public Administration.
During her tenure at EY Luiza gained extensive experience in audit, tax and accounting and specifically the use of technology within the finance function. She worked with leading multi-national organizations helping them to develop innovative solutions for mastering their worldwide tax, accounting and audit challenges. The majority of her former clients are Fortune 500 companies, many of whom are key innovation leaders in their respective industries (pharmaceutical, logistics, automotive, financial services, consumer products, etc.).
Having a passion for technology, Luiza worked with cross functional teams of tax accountants, engineers, data scientists, designers, developers and other professionals to break the mold of conventional “tax-thinking” and bring out-of-the-box technology enabled solutions for her clients.
When moving to US (New York), as a true pioneer, she became the driving force behind the design and implementation of six different uniquely positioned tax data analytics solutions with global scale that became widely known in the market place. Acting as the product manager for these solutions, she lead all product life phases from conception to launch to execution, including marketing and sales.
In 2017 she broadened her horizon and took her passion for technology to the next level by moving out of Tax and into EY Foundry, a corporate venturing unit designed to re-imagine the future of tax, accounting and legal services. There she worked closely together with global innovation leaders on a variety of technology projects, mobile/web applications (IOS/Android), AI and cryptocurrency. In addition, she was responsible to develop and drive global technology and innovation strategies for the tax industry.
Luiza is a true believer in blockchain technology. She is excited to help Auditchain lead the assurance industry transformation into its decentralized future to change the way in which companies, governments and regulators interact with each other.
Luiza brings a unique perspective to Auditchain through her background in finance (tax, accounting and audit), technology, global experience, diversity and innovation, helping us to transform the future of assurance.
