Early in his career, Harnish was partner in charge of technology for the Chicago office of Crowe Chizek & Co., a national CPA company rival to his new employer.

He has also served on the board of directors of software vendor Knowledge Concepts, Inc., Valdosta, Ga., and on the technology advisory board of Ethicspoint of Portland, Ore., operators of an Internet-based system that enables individuals to anonymously report misconduct or ethical violations in companies, government agencies or nonprofit organizations.
