Protiviti, a global consulting firm, has appointed Lindsay Dart as a managing director within its London office, where he will lead the UK Internal Audit and Financial Controls (IAFC) team.
With nearly 30 years' experience in both professional services and the financial services industry, Lindsay has developed and led highly complex projects in the areas of risk-based auditing, systems and controls, and financial reporting for companies both in the UK and internationally.
Before joining Protiviti, Lindsay spent seven years at Deutsche Bank in London, where he had global responsibility for all internal audit work in the finance and risk functions and the global banking business. Previously, Lindsay spent 21 years at PricewaterhouseCoopers, latterly as a partner in London, where he led teams delivering a wide range of audit, operational risk and corporate governance services to international commercial and investment banks, fund managers, funds, brokers and metal dealers. During his time with PwC, Lindsay also spent time working in Central Europe and Portugal.
Andrew Clinton, Head of Protiviti UK, said: "We are delighted to welcome Lindsay to the team at Protiviti. He brings a wealth of experience within internal audit and financial compliance and will play a major role in driving the firm's continued expansion within these areas."
Commenting on his appointment, Lindsay Dart, said: "I'm delighted to be joining Protiviti's world-class team, which has an outstanding reputation in the internal audit and risk consultancy market.
The challenges of daily technological innovation, data security, regulatory change and the need to enhance business performance are impacting organisations in almost every sector. Boards, regulators and other stakeholders are placing ever-increasing reliance on the work of internal audit functions to provide them with assurance across these and other risks. The need for internal audit to have access to specialist skills is therefore greater than ever. Protiviti is ideally placed to help clients meet these needs."
