Muis joins EC's Internal Audit Service

The man responsible for revamping the audit and financial control system at the World Bank has been appointed head of the European Commission's Internal Audit Service.

Jules Muis

Former Ernst & Young executive regional partner, Jules Muis, put accountancy at the top of the agenda during his tenure at the World Bank. Dutch born Muis, 58, previously held the post of director-general for International Cooperation in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where he gained wide-ranging experience in development issues, with a particular focus on managing complex development structures and processes.

His new appointment comes the day after the first meeting of the Audit Progress Committee, the body charged with monitoring the follow-up to Internal Audit Service recommendations and the quality of audit work throughout the Commission.

Welcoming the arrival of Muis, EC vice-president Neil Kinnock, said: ‘In recruiting Muis, the Commission is gaining the services of a professional who has invaluable experience of introducing successful change in a complex multinational organisation.

‘His expertise will be of great help in developing the new internal audit systems and culture which form a central element of the Commission’s modernisation strategy.’
