In a separate case, former partner Pamela Hartford, who served on another audit team, had a romantic relationship with Robert Brehl—the former chief accounting officer of client Ventas, a real estate investment trust, according to the SEC. The SEC said in a press release that this case marks the first time it has enforced actions against auditors failing to remain independent "due to close personal relationships between auditors and client personnel."Auditors are independent accountants who examine and confirm the accuracy of a public company's financial statements, according to Reuters.
A third former partner, Michael Kamienski, reportedly did not have any inappropriate relationships with clients, but was also charged because he "became aware of facts suggesting the improper relationship [between Hartford and Brehl] yet failed to perform a reasonable inquiry or raise concerns internally to Ernst & Young’s U.
