Approva’s Philip Livingston on Sarbanes-Oxley

Approva’s Philip Livingston on Sarbanes-Oxley

by Rick Turoczy on February 16, 2005

By any measure, Philip Livingston has led a storied life. After graduating from the University of Maryland in 1979, he became a backup offensive tackle for the Oakland Raiders, where he was a member of the Super Bowl XV championship team in 1981.

After his career with the Raiders ended that year, Livingston received an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley, and embarked on what has been a 20-plus-year career in finance. In 1993, he helped take Boulder, Colo.-based Celestial Seasonings public. In 1999, he became president and CEO of Financial Executives International in Florham Park, N.J. There, he helped craft two sections of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and was on hand when President Bush signed the legislation into law.

After two years as chief financial officer at World Wrestling Entertainment Inc., Livingston was named last month as vice chairman of Approva Corp., a Vienna, Va.-based maker of enterprise controls management software. Livingston spoke today with Computerworld’s Thomas Hoffman about his work at Approva and his expectations for corporations’ ongoing Sarbanes-Oxley compliance efforts.
