Key audit appointment
The University has appointed David Kyles as Chief Internal Auditor.
He succeeds Hamish McKay, who retired recently, and will take up the position in early June.
Mr Kyles has worked in senior internal audit management roles for the past 20 years, most recently as Director of Internal Audit at Aggreko plc, a FTSE 100 company.
Prior to this, he established the Internal Audit & Risk Management function for a global telecommunications company after joining them from Ernst & Young.
I am very much looking forward to using my experience, both in the private and public sectors, to help lead a strong internal audit function providing tangible benefit to the University.
The Chief Internal Auditor provides an independent, objective assessment of the University’s (and any commercial client’s) control environment and the University’s overall risk management and governance processes.
Internal Audit’s scope includes all the University’s operations, resources, staff, services and responsibilities to other bodies, but does not extend to the academic process.
From 1 August, Internal Audit will join the Student and Academic Services Group, enhancing good governance.
