Terrence Wilson, CPA, MBA, CAPAFeatured Member for March 2019

Accounts Payable Operations & Compliance, Altria Client Services, LLC

Mr. Terrence Wilson serves as a sr. financial analyst for Altria, parent company to Philip Morris USA, which is headquartered in Richmond, VA. Mr. Wilson began his career as a staff auditor at KPMG. After three years in the public accounting field, Mr. Wilson sought to further sharpen his skills in accounting and finance by earning an MBA in 2004 from the College of William and Mary. Shortly thereafter, he began his tenure with Altria in the Corporate Audit department. Currently, he holds the position of sr. financial analyst in the Accounts Payable department, an area in which he has spent 10 years. One of his roles includes focusing on performing compliance auditing for the Company’s travel and entertainment expenses. 

1. What are you passionate about with your job?

With reference to card programs, most of my time is spent analyzing and/or auditing some aspect of T&E expenses. My passion is finding new ways to analyze or audit my data so that it tells me a story that I might not have paid attention to in the past…while at the same time, not impacting or enhancing how our employee users feel about submitting expenses and adhering to our T&E policies.

2. What are you most proud of about your job? 

The thing I am most proud of about my job is the flexibility. We’ve used some aspect of T&E expense reporting for a long time. But despite our maturity in this area, my management gives me freedom to change a process if I can show the benefit, and I always have support to enhance the process if I find a way to do things better. Another great thing about the T&E industry in general is that the T&E landscape continues to evolve as technological innovations make an impact, T&E systems get more sophisticated and artificial intelligence continues to become more of the norm.

3. Terrence's current challenge:

The biggest challenge is allocating the proper time to analyze/audit data to its fullest. There are so many ways and tools to use to view massive amounts of data, but it’s difficult at times to implement new ways to analyze and audit this data due to limited resources.

4. What are you passionate about outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy working out. Nothing makes me feel better than knowing I finished a good workout, whether it's lifting weights or going out for a jog.

5. Fun fact: 

 I’m coming upon my second anniversary of marriage in April so I’m ending (as people have told me) the "honeymoon" phase of the marriage. I can say thus far that marriage has been a rewarding experience for me as I learn more about my wife and even discover new things about myself. We shall see what the third year brings. 😊
