Bright, funny, and helpful, Ann M. Butera is a natural leader. She founded the Whole Person Project, Inc., in 1984, and uses her expertise in creating and managing organizational transformation to enable her clients to achieve their goals. One of the things that sets her company apart is its highly-tailored approach to developing solutions that incorporate the client company’s existing tools, template, and organizational culture. This makes change easier to introduce and sustain. In 1993, she shifted the focus of her practice to concentrate on internal audit and risk management. To expand her market reach, she authored, “Mastering the Five Tiers of Audit Competency: The Essence of Effective Auditing,” in 2016.
Ms. Butera garnered experience as a management consultant at the National Bankcard Corp. and at Chase Manhattan Bank N.A., and as a department manager at Abraham & Straus Stores. She has also been a member of the supervisory (audit) committee for Bethpage Federal Credit Union, an advisory board member for the Long Island Development Corp., a board member and the former president of Long Island Networking Entrepreneurs, and a member of the board of directors of the Nassau County Council of Girl Scouts of the United States of America.
Ms. Butera earned a Bachelor of Arts from Long Island University in 1979 and a Master of Business Administration with an emphasis in organizational development from Adelphi University in 1982.
