I completed successfully difficult audit assignments and was given responsibility above and beyond my level of experience at an early stage in my auditing career. On several occasions I initiated auditing techniques that were later adopted by other team members as a normal course of the audit. As financial controller at the Athens Stock Exchange, I was able to achieve significant savings on expenditure for this organization. At KPMG, I was able to contribute to a challenging outsourcing project (Barclays Bank) above and beyond normal expectations. As Audit Quality Control Responsible at my most recent position, I self trained in the CCH Audit Automation program and taught this program to the other audit team professionals.
