Sunera Reaches Five Year Anniversary Milestone

March 2010 marks Sunera’s five year anniversary of being in business.

Tampa, FL, March 10, 2010 --( Sunera (, a multinational provider of business and technology risk consulting services, would like to announce the accomplishment of reaching its five year milestone. Over the past five years, Sunera has grown to 12 office locations, including three outside the United States, and delivered nearly 900 projects to clients in the public, private and government sectors.

Sunera was founded early 2005, by two former KPMG risk advisory services partners, Peter Armstrong and Emmett Lange. Believing they could provide a higher quality of service at more competitive rates, began, along with a few employees, working out of shared centers in the Tampa and Miami markets. With the goal of providing risk based consulting services that would allow companies to achieve and sustain cost effective corporate governance, Sunera opened its doors and it wasn’t long before the first project was won. Through the next three years, Sunera experienced rapid expansion on all fronts including: revenues, client base, resources, office locations and service offerings.

”From the outset,” said Emmett Lange, “our plan was to build a national, project-oriented consulting firm with a strong technology focus that would serve as an alternative to traditional CPA and staffing firms. Five years later, we believe we have accomplished this goal as demonstrated by our impressive portfolio of clients, service offerings, and office locations.”

During the most recent years, 2008 and 2009, Sunera has resisted the job cutting and retrenching plagued by its competitors and supplemented its go-to-market strategy with an experienced sales force. As a result, Sunera has achieved year over year growth during the 4th quarter of 2009 and 1st quarter of 2010. Recently, Sunera completed its first acquisition and was notified that it had been selected as “Vendor of the Year” for one of its high profile and long-time clients.

“We believe we are only as good as the quality of our people, and during the past year, we have added some great people to an already outstanding and loyal core team,” said Mr. Armstrong. He added, “Our team is motivated and capable of leading our expansion, organically or through acquisition, and building upon our exceptional client base.”

Sunera’s core service lines include: Internal audit and technology audit co-sourcing; information security and PCI compliance; Sarbanes-Oxley and Model Audit Rule assistance; IFRS transition; and business and technology advisory.
