George Municipality takes great honour in applauding its Chief Audit Executive, Jean-Pierre Rossouw, for his election as a member of the Institute of Internal Auditors South Africa (IIASA) board of directors. IIASA is part of an international network representing the interests of Internal Auditors worldwide. As a part of this international network, the IIASA upholds and supports the fundamental tenets of the profession – the Code of Ethics and the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. The Institute supports the profession by providing a wide range of services dedicated to the education and advancement of internal auditors and dynamically promoting and developing the profession in South Africa.

Dr Michele Gratz, Municipal Manager of George Municipality, commended Rossouw for his election to the Board of Directors and said she could not be prouder to have a senior official of Rossouw’s calibre on her team. Gratz congratulated Rossouw for this prestigious honour.  Rossouw has been serving as the Deputy Governor of the IIASA Western Cape Regional Committee and has now been nominated and elected at the IIASA’s AGM in December 2023 to take the National Office as a member of the Board of Directors of the IIASA. This will allow Rossouw to represent the local government sphere and influence the direction of the internal audit profession at a national level.

“I’m truly honoured to have been nominated and elected as a Member of the IIASA board. I’m looking forward to continuing to add value to the internal audit profession, taking the profession to greater heights and supporting the future of Internal Audit,” Rossouw said.
