Anita Wu joined Green Hasson Janks in 2000 and has more than 20 years of auditing experience within the entertainment industry. Her specialty includes profit participation audits on behalf of talent, investors and co-producers at both the major and mini studios. She currently manages most of the audits at Walt Disney Pictures and Television and NBC Universal. She has also performed audits of merchandise licensing royalties and music royalties.
Because she specializes in contractual accounting in the entertainment industry, Wu has had the unparalleled opportunity to work closely with the top attorneys in this space. Her collaborative nature and deep expertise has made her a sought-after expert by clients and colleagues alike. This mentality extends beyond just her role as an accountant, however.
Wu is also proud to be part of the committee that created the Green Hasson Janks Women’s Empowerment Initiative, which is focused on helping women achieve success at the firm by providing training to advance women into leadership positions. GHJ’s Women’s Empowerment Speaker Series invites women who have achieved top roles in their field to discuss the path to leadership and offer insights into the journey’s challenges and opportunities. Wu moderated the first event in the series where she hosted a discussion with Natasha Case, founder and CEO of Coolhaus Ice Cream. Additionally, as part of the Women’s Empowerment Initiative, Wu regularly writes blogs about how women can #BeMore in the workplace and is a thought leader in the space. Her focus on both diversity and inclusion at the firm has made her an inspiration for both her colleagues and those looking to enter the accounting field.
