Sean Tompkins steps down from role as Chartered IIA Council Member as maximum term approaches

Sean Tompkins has decided to step down from his role as a co-opted director and member of the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditor’s Council ahead of the AGM, as he will complete his maximum six-year term in a few months and cannot therefore serve a complete full year on Council.

Peter Elam, President of the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors said:

“Sean’s time and contributions on Council have been greatly valued over close to six years. On behalf of Council and our members I would like to use this opportunity to thank Sean for his commitment.
