Deloitte secures internal audit expert

has appointed Kevin Patience a director in its financial services practice.
Patience was previously employed by Aviva, where he most recently was the
director of internal audit for Norwich Union Insurance, UK’s biggest insurer.

His new role will be to lead the provision of internal audit services to the
UK insurance sector.

Kari Hale, a Deloitte partner, said Patience’s arrival added further strength
to the firm’s already well established financial services internal audit team.

Patience, Deloitte financial services director, said internal audit functions
would continue to be under pressure to demonstrate they could deliver real value
and insight and help drive forward the risk management and governance agenda.
