Hi! I'm

Richard Chambers

Welcome to my personal web site!

I am so blessed to be in a position of leadership in the global profession of internal auditing, and to have developed a network of thousands of colleagues around the world. The purpose of this site is not to sell you anything, but to keep you aware of my travels, speaking activities, publications and perspectives. Where appropriate, I provide links to other resources and sites that will enable you to explore information and opportunities in more detail.

For those who do not know me, I am the President and CEO of The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), the global professional association for internal auditors. I have spent more than 40 years in internal auditing and association management, serving as inspector general of the Tennessee Valley Authority, deputy inspector general of the U.S. Postal Service, and director of the U.S. Army Internal Review at the Pentagon. Before joining The IIA, I was national practice leader in Internal Audit Advisory Services at PwC. I author a weekly blog, and speak regularly at internal audit events around the world. I have been featured in numerous major media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Bloomberg Radio, CNBC, and CNBC Asia.

In addition to my tireless efforts on behalf of the internal audit profession, I do take time to enjoy life. I am blessed to have a loving wife Kim, three beautiful daughters, two great son-in-laws and three magnificent grand-children! We are fortunate that my wife can travel with me as I serve the profession, and we occasionally take the time to stop and smell the roses on our travels.

One of my passions in addition to travel and work is American college football. I am especially passionate about the Alabama Crimson Tide. On free weekends every year between September and November, you are likely to find me fully decked out in my team gear rooting for the Crimson Tide along with 100,000 other passionate fans.

Take some time to look around this site, and make sure you connect with me on LinkedIn, Twitter, WeChat or another social media platform.
