The internal audit network panel

Graeme was first attracted to internal audit by the opportunity to work with a varied and diverse range of organisations and making a difference by recommending ways for improvement. Upon graduating from university, he joined a specialist provider of internal audit and risk management services. Ten years on, he remains a specialist internal auditor and is currently a director of the governance, risk and internal control team at Mazars LLP. His internal audit experience covers the breadth of the public and not for profit sectors including Central Government, Local Government, education, housing and health and charities.

A fellow of the Association since 1992, Lorraine has worked in internal audit for the past 18 years, holding positions with Abbey National, Western Power and her current employer AXA. Throughout this time she has covered a wide range of audit activity both in the UK and Italy and both at the coal face end of 'branch auditing' and at the 'buck stops here' end of audit management. A member of the ACCA internal audit sub-committee since 2002, Lorraine is a founder member of the recently formed Internal Audit Network Panel. Lorraine is always happy to debate and discuss matters of IA interest.

John Webb FCCA

David Watton FCCA
David has worked as an internal auditor for the last 18 years and has experienced at first hand the major developments and convergence that have taken place in internal auditing, corporate governance and risk management in this time, including the impact of Sarbanes-Oxley.  His current position and extensive travels as consultant auditor with FTSE 10 global oil and gas company BG Group has given him an international insight to the internal audit profession.
