The Engagement

Clearview Group was engaged by Discovery, Inc. to provide co-source SOX & Internal Audit services during two major transitions for the business. Discovery, Inc. relocated its headquarters from Silver Spring, Maryland to New York City, New York and during that process executed on a major acquisition of Scripps Network. Through those transitions, Discovery Inc.’s Internal Audit department experienced some natural attrition from the headquarter relocation and the acquisition of Scripps increased the workload for the department significantly which created the need for a co-source relationship to address surge needs.

With aggressive year-end completion targets, Discovery, Inc.’s Internal Audit team looked to Clearview Group’s Risk Advisory practice to assist supporting SOX and Internal Audit requirements. In this support role, Clearview provided arms and legs testing to support key financial and IT controls testing, as well as liaise with the external auditor.

When determining which provider to engage on this project, Discovery, Inc.’s Senior Vice President of Internal Audit, Shane Shrader mentioned that “as a numbers guy, choosing Clearview Group as a vendor on this project was a no brainer. It was evident that Clearview’s Risk Advisory team possessed the right skillset to not only match our internal team’s dynamics, but to also successfully produce more effectively and efficiently than the competition.”

Working with Clearview Group’s RISK ADVISORY PRACTICE

Clearview Group’s Risk Advisory team understands the importance of efficiency and increased control over our clients’ processes.

“I hold my team to high standard in relation to deadlines – we were thrilled to have successfully met the deadlines. It is a huge relief to know that a team of dedicated problem solvers are just a phone call away from helping me and my employees accomplish our most important goals. When my team is happy, I am happy,” adds Shrader.
