Blaine Fuller is a Senior Consultant with Postlethwaite & Netterville.  Blaine joined the firm in 2009.  Blaine focuses in the area of Business Intelligence (BI) consulting and implementation.  He has extensive experience working with clients to identify business information needs, extract data from various systems, and transform it into meaningful information for reporting.

Blaine also has extensive experience in process automation and the development of custom solutions, utilizing technology to efficiently address complex business problems.  He has also assisted with a wide range of other projects, including financial & operational analysis, litigation support, and business valuation & transaction advisory projects.​

Brad Thiessen is currently the Director of Client Services at Arbutus. He has been with Arbutus since 2007. Brad first started learning about computer assisted audit in 1993 when he first joined ACL…back when ACL was a company of just 12 people. He has seen many changes in audit analysis technology over the last 20 years. He continues to see a wide variance in the adoption and maturity of audit analysis among organizations. With the ACL non-compete agreement expiring in 2013, the past year has been fun but, challenging for him as he helped manage Arbutus’ transition into the audit market. During his time at ACL he was a frequent speaker at many audit conferences and chapter meetings. Brad has a degree in finance and worked in financial lending prior to joining ACL.

One of the things he enjoys and respects most about Arbutus is that they are technology first company, with talented, creative developers headed up by Grant Brodie. Grant was a founder and Chief Architect at ACL until 2003. In many ways Grant defined what audit analytics is; starting by when he wrote the first version of ACL back in 1985. Arbutus represents Grant’s vision to continue defining audit analytics.
