Noe Duran, CPA*


I was born and raised in the northwest Oklahoma town of Enid. My passion for sports led me a short drive north to Wichita, KS to place kick a few seasons at Friends University before heading back south and finishing my Accounting degree and falling in love with everything orange at Oklahoma State University (Go Pokes!!)

My professional career started at EY in Oklahoma City in the assurance practice where I served clients across various industries including oil and gas, utilities, restaurants and healthcare. I then transitioned to industry for a Controller opportunity with a family-owned private equity group that found itself diversifying in the oil downturn into South America with a focus on Brazil. I continued in my Controller role but took the opportunity to relocate to São Paulo where I was responsible for the US consolidated financial reporting and process improvements for the consumer retail investments across 7 brands spread over 250 retail locations. For over four years I worked with foreign entity controllers to ensure accurate and timely financial reporting, as well as executing financial due diligence and contract negotiations on investments made in the country.

After our first child was born, we made the decision to move closer to home and came back to Oklahoma where I spent the next seven years with another Oklahoma family-owned PE group. During this time, I worked directly with the CFO to manage a portfolio of investments for several Funds and reported to outside limited partners. These funds held investments across various industries, with the most recent emphasis heavily focused in the real estate sector.

The professional experience I’ve gained across multiple industries is what drove me to join and contribute to the Embark team! I look forward to utilizing my knowledge and skill set to continue serving clients across various industries, focusing on helping them solve problems, streamline processes and assisting them with anything that allows their team to improve their work and personal lives!

Outside of work, you’ll likely catch me and my wife, Pam, cheering our two boys, Noah and Santiago, on the competitive soccer pitch or at the gym getting a good sweat on. When not in sweaty competitions, we love our yearly international travel trips, the warm weather and sound of waves at our feet with a cold drink in hand!
