Our Purpose

Behind every successful company is a great purpose, team and story. At Stinnett, our purpose is to help companies manage risk and improve performance … operate better, smarter and faster. We’re passionate about client service and our strong retention rates for clients and team members back up a solid reputation of providing unparalleled service and doing the right thing.

Who is Stinnett?

Founded in 2001, Stinnett is a professional advisory firm that strives to maximize value for public and private companies. As a certified Women’s Business Enterprise with offices in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Denver, we serve Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies and small-to-large size organizations with global operations.

Our areas of expertise include internal audit, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, business process design and reengineering, cybersecurity reviews, business continuity and disaster recovery, anti-corruption and FCPA compliance, vendor audits and fraud investigations. The firm caters to industries ranging from energy, financial services, manufacturing and higher education to aerospace, governmental, non-profit and retail sectors.

Combining a sophisticated practice with approachability, Stinnett subject matter experts serve as an extension of our client’s business operations, rather than outside consultants. And with nearly 30 years in the business, we excel at identifying and understanding risks while leveraging industry best practices to implement the right processes and controls to manage and monitor those risks.

“Stinnett and its highly qualified team has been an important partner of Energy Transfer’s for more than 16 years. To have a vendor relationship that spans this length of time is extraordinary and shows the depth to which we value their work, which includes internal audit, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance support and testing, business process improvements and ongoing risk management assessment. Their performance, and most importantly, the integrity with which they do their work is what will keep our relationship with them going for years to come. They are truly a pleasure to work with.”

“I believe internal audit has two overarching goals: ensure proper controls are in place and functioning as intended, and add value to the operation by identifying efficiency opportunities for the organization. Stinnett & Associates has provided both of these outcomes and we view them as true partners.

Our interaction with the Stinnett staff has been rewarding from top to bottom. Talented and knowledgeable, they are also enjoyable people with which to work!”
