W hen I moved to the UK to become Chief Internal Auditor for SABMiller plc, it was essential that I established a network amongst other FTSE 100 Directors of Risk & Audit, and that I obtained as much information as possible regarding the UK audit community. Establishing a valuable relationship with IAC enabled me to do both, and to find top quality talent to join my team.
IAC has an in depth understanding of specific risk and audit requirements which I have found invaluable throughout my time in the UK, from SABMiller plc, to my role as SVP Internal Audit at Intercontinental Hotels and into the current portfolio stage of my career. The professionals at IAC are always able to provide a broad level of advice and expertise regarding the assurance market. Their Seminar Series Events are excellent, and they also provide a means for me to keep in touch with former colleagues, and others I have met through my involvement in the audit community.
IAC is at the hub of the risk and audit world, with exceptional knowledge of all the latest trends, and the sentiments of the Executive Board. I have a developed a very strong, and mutually
