The Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors announced Tuesday the appointment of John Wood as interim CEO.

Wood’s experience features a blend of commercial, not-for-profit, and third-sector proficiency to call upon. He specializes in advising organizations that are going through change and growth.

“I am very much looking forward to leading the Chartered IIA over the next few months and continuing its great work,” Wood said in a news release. “My focus over the coming months will be to ensure that the Institute remains ‘fit for purpose’ in delivering its strategic objectives, with a sound financial base and emphasis on meeting member needs.”

Wood replaces Dr. Ian Peters, who left the organization in December 2019.
