Bright, funny, and helpful, Ann M. Butera is a natural leader. She has sat at the head of the Whole Person Project, Inc., since she founded it in 1984, and continues to thrive in the role. Her expertise in creating and sustaining transformation and in internal audit risk management made her well-suited to grow the organizational development firm. One of the things that sets her company apart is its highly tailored approach to incorporate the client company’s existing tools, template, and organizational culture into their new path. This helps changes become easier to introduce and implement.
Prior to her current endeavor, 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 audit committee for Bethpage Federal Credit Union, and advisory board member for the Long Island Development Corp., and the board of directors of the Nassau County Council of Girl Scouts of the United States of America. To help her expand her reach, she authored, “Mastering the Five Tiers of Audit Competency: The Essence of Effective Auditing,” in 2016.
Ms. Butera prepared for her journey by earning a Bachelor of Arts from Long Island University in 1979 and a Master of Business Administration in organizational development from Adelphi University in 1982. She also became affiliated with prominent groups like the American Society for Training and Development, Financial Women International, Long Island Networking Entrepreneurs, the Institute of Internal Auditors, and the National Association of Corporation Directors, among others.
In her spare time, Ms. Butera enjoys tennis, dancing, and gardening.
