About Adrian

Adrian Romero is a manager in the process risk consulting practice for RSM US LLP. Due to his passion for the firm and its strategy—Vision 100 … Powered by our culture—he is one of several first-choice advisors who has been recognized as an RSM FutureMaker, someone who helps drive the firm’s vision forward. Adrian also received the firm’s Flavio Castillo Award for pursuing excellence in his personal and professional life, being a steward of his community, and exemplifying the characteristics of RSM’s 5 C’s (caring, collaborative, courageous, critical thinking, curious), which are core to the firm’s culture.

Adrian is the national leader of the firm’s VALOR (Veterans and Allies Leading Outreach) employee network group (ENG), which encourages the recruitment, retention and success of veterans, active/reserve military members and their families within RSM and local communities. It is through his leadership of VALOR that Adrian helps provide resources to support the development of these individuals, while leveraging their skill sets to serve our clients.


Adrian has experience providing large global industrial and consumer product manufacturing, life science, retail, technology and health care clients with internal audit, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), data analytics and management consulting services. He has considerable experience with completing risk assessment interviews and data analysis to identify and prioritize risks, conduct scoping, and develop and execute internal audit plans. Adrian is also seasoned at planning and leading SOX implementation projects and mentions that collaborating with external auditors during these projects has played a significant role in his career. One of Adrian’s greatest strengths is identifying inefficiencies and process improvements that can help increase business performance and deliver optimal operational results.

With a high degree of client contact, he has substantial experience working with international firms and international business units for clients spanning all major continents.
