Sally and her team are responsible for liaising with the IIA volunteer structure to support the IIA’s process for maintaining and updating the IPPF (Definition of Internal Auditing, The Code of Ethics, Standards and Guidance). She has been tasked with the aspirational goal of leading the evolution of her Standards & Guidance team in delivering thought leadership to the internal audit profession. She is a member of the IIA’s strategic task force to develop the capability to be agile in the development of guidance/knowledge to keep internal audit professionals current and relevant. In her current role, she had the opportunity to participate in chief audit executive roundtables in Orlando, Chicago and New York City, where internal audit practitioners provided candid feedback on exposure draft issues to COSO and the PwC authors of the new COSO IC framework.
Her career in internal audit prior to joining The IIA in October 2011 involved leading internal auditing and compliance organizations in medium to large publically traded companies in the high tech and telecom industries (ATMEL Corporation – a $2.6 billion semiconductor company – headquartered in San Jose, CA; AT&T Wireless, based in Seattle, WA; Verizon Wireless, based in Warren, New Jersey; and AirTouch Communications, spin-off of Pacific Telesis Group, headquartered in San Francisco, CA, and acquired by Vodafone in 1999).
