Michael S. Camacho has been named partner at LGC+D, where he will serve as internal control specialist and lead the firm’s corporate solutions niche.
Camacho graduated from Northern Illinois University’s College of Business with a B.S. in Accountancy.

Camacho has always been interested in business, spending a good deal of his youth in manufacturing and service environments. As a person who has always enjoyed learning about an enterprise, figuring out how it worked and looking for ways to make it better, accounting affords him the opportunity to do just that. He also enjoys the way it allows him to learn about companies in multiple industries and work with people from a variety of backgrounds.
He joined the firm nine years ago after serving eight years as an audit manager at Deloitte & Touche where he was responsible for managing the audits of domestic and multinational public and private companies, as well as serving as a local and national facilitator for the firm. Mike’s focus at LGC+D is on audit, attest and consulting for public and private companies, and his expertise is concentrated in serving commercial niches (manufacturing, service, distribution, technology, media and telecommunications).
Aside from providing attest and consulting services, Mike is an internal control specialist, focused on helping companies evaluate the adequacy of their financial, operational and IT internal controls. To this end, he provides compliance related internal control services and outsourced internal audit services. Additionally, he leads the firm’s commercial & industrial and corporate solutions groups and is chairman of the CPE committee.
A licensed CPA in Rhode Island and Illinois and a Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), Camacho holds memberships in AICPA, RISCPA and the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA). He is a board member of the Providence Foundation, an affiliate of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce that works toward the revitalization of downtown to provide long-term economic and social benefits for its citizens. He was also named as one of Providence Business News’ Forty Under 40 in 2007.
