The new IACA Auditor is to be French Association President Denis Brendel. Denis was a former executive director of the public administration. He studied at the Faculty of Economics of Aix en Provence. His job was to set up contracts with the state and mobilize european programs. We are in competent hands and he will be a worthy successor to Graeme Harbour, to whom we all owe a debt of gratitude to for doing this important but unrecognised role. We wish Denis all the best!
