Walker Sports Audit is an independent audit service that autonomously evaluates our client’s entire portfolio of endorsements, contracts, investments, compliance, insurance, and tax reporting for a fixed or contingency fee.
You have people
watching your money, but
who's watching them?
Walker Sports Audit ensures you are receiving representation from your trusted advisors that you can actually trust. In short, we watch the people watching your money and investments.
Embezzlement, theft, damage, and destruction come from all directions in a constant storm. It seems like everyone has their hand in the cookie jar.
In 2015, Tim Duncan accused his former advisor of bilking him out of over $20M. At the time, he said, “I know what I am doing. It’s not like I was squandering my money or being irresponsible. I am a professional athlete, and I am constantly on the road. I did the appropriate thing and hired professional advisors to watch over my money and my investments. The problem was there was no one watching them.” In 2018, Tim settled for a recovery of $7.5M. It was the best he could do, while his advisor, Charles Banks, was eventually sentenced to four years in federal prison for defrauding him.
Since 2015, the need for Walker Sports Audit has only grown more critical. Tim Duncan’s story, along with countless other stories, and encouraged by the founding partners of Black Progress Matters, Walker Sports Audit is scheduled to launch.

WHO WE ARE
Walker Sports Audit is an independent audit service that autonomously evaluates our client’s entire portfolio of endorsements, contracts, investments, compliance, insurance, and tax reporting for a fixed or contingency fee. WSA also evaluates and rates all of our client’s financial relationships, especially with their agents, lawyers, accountants, coaches, doctors, trainers, advisors, family, and friends. Additionally, WSA can provide our clients with independent continuous monitoring services for all of their financial activity.
WHO WE ARE NOT
Most importantly, no WSA service provider will ever be able to be engaged by our clients beyond our WSA engagement. We will not be looking to solicit clients beyond our stated services. We will never attempt to replace our client’s accountants, agents, etc., we simply offer our clients a very valuable and necessary audit and evaluation with a degree of separation that ensures no compromising agenda or misplaced loyalties.
WHO WE SERVE
Although we will initially be addressing athletes and celebrities [who fill the news every day with horror stories of how they were ruined by embezzlement from their most trusted advisors], we feel our independent audit and continuous monitoring services will also prove valuable to clients who have considerable estates with little limited personal business acumen or experience. Estates acquired through inheritance or divorce are particularly at risk from unscrupulous or indifferent fiduciary oversight.
WHAT WE DO
There are four main components of our WSA services:
→ Independent Forensic Audit
→ Advacovery’s Recovery of Funds
→ Continuous Financial Monitoring
→ Walker Sports Audit

Black Progress Matters’s core mission is to change the face of leadership in organizations worldwide through its various Black executive staffing activities. BPM is built on the premise that if BPM can secure the opportunity to fill an executive opening for an organization with the best candidate [who is a person of color], BPM will begin to change the color of the executive suite while enhancing the aspiration of everyone of color within the organization.
Black Progress Matters recognizes that the color of the executive suite [or ownership of an organization] speaks volumes about the character and true opportunity available for people of color in an organization. BPM believes that if you look to the top of an organization and see Black leadership [or ownership] - it will inspire everyone of color in that organization.
Leading companies require diversity in management to add perspective and effectiveness as their employee base becomes increasingly more diverse. While there has been encouraging growth in Black professionals in the workplace, many organizations are struggling with diversity at the executive level - and promoting diversity at the executive level is key to our mission.
