Daniel Gaffney & Associates: Internal Audit Leadership & Risk Management Advisory

Chief Audit Executive Services

At Daniel Gaffney & Associates, we recognize that the role of the chief audit executive or internal audit director can vary depending on a company’s industry, objectives, size, and complexity. It is also often difficult to hire and retain top talent for the necessary role and, at smaller companies, the senior IA executive need not be a full-time equivalent.

Daniel Gaffney & Associates understands the role of internal audit, the audit committee, and the board. We recognize that the senior audit executive is a key link to management, but that the role doesn't demand 40 hours a week at every company. We are uniquely positioned to offer highly experienced audit executives who can join your management team on a part-time, outsourced basis, at a fraction of the cost of recruiting and hiring a person of similar qualifications. Doing so can drive operational improvements and cost savings while improving financial reporting, internal audit quality and risk management. Where requested, we report directly to the board, preserving independence in the function.

We also provide short-term, interim internal audit leadership to companies in special circumstances, including during internal or independent investigations, planned mergers and divestitures, or when a former executive is no longer available. Our experience allows you to pay for exactly what your organization needs, reducing fees paid to other consulting firms for senior manager and partner time.
