In June 2013, Internal Auditor highlighted 20 promising audit professionals in its “20 Under 30” cover story. Members of The IIA’s American Hall of Distinguished Audit Practitioners sifted through nominations and chose those they felt represented the best and brightest of the next generation of internal auditors.
Internal Auditor followed up with some of the honorees to learn about what they’ve accomplished in the past year. Many have been promoted, and some have moved on to positions at other firms. Whether they’re still working as auditors or have shifted paths into finance, analytics, or consulting, these young professionals say the skills and knowledge they’ve acquired in internal auditing have been a tremendous asset to their careers.
