CIPFA hires director

In a personnel swap, Sore joins CIPFA from the Audit Commission where he was a senior manager with responsibility for the external auditor quality control programme. The programme was established to revise the commission’s quality control strategy and encourage best practice between auditors.

‘I am delighted with the appointment and look forward to ensuring CIPFA’s views continue to be influential – raising the profile of the institute further,’ Sore said.

Sore, who qualified with CIPFA in 1986, has a background in the public sector, having previously worked for District Audit. He also managed external audits for a variety of local government and health service organisations, as well as the London boroughs of Wandsworth and Merton.

He recently sat his final MBA examinations.

CIPFA chief executive David Adams said Sore’s public-sector background, as well as his experience of local government, District Audit and work on auditing standards, would be valuable assets to the institute.
