Longtime IIA Leader Wayne G. Moore Dies

Longtime IIA friend and volunteer Wayne G. Moore, CIA, CPA, was as analytical as he was innovative, and throughout his career he enthusiastically promoted the value of internal auditing while helping the profession to evolve. He also genuinely cared about others, whether engaging with fellow committee members or IIA staff.

Moore, a native of Kennett Square, Penn., died Thursday, Aug. 25, after a battle with cancer. He was 68.

During more than 35 years as a member of The IIA, Moore served on a number of global committees and boards. His stints included chairman of the International Internal Audit Standards Board (IIASB), chairman of the Board of Research Advisors (now CREA), vice chairman of the former IIA Research Foundation (now the Internal Audit Foundation), and a trustee of the Foundation.

“Wayne’s passion for internal auditing inspired practitioners, volunteers, and IIA staff who had the good fortune to interact with him,” said IIA President and CEO, Richard F. Chambers, CIA, QIAL, CGAP, CCSA, CRMA. “I feel grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him. The consummate professional and volunteer, he provided outstanding leadership to The IIA through his dedicated service to the organization and the profession.”   

While chairman of the IIASB, Moore played a key role in developing the Definition of Internal Auditing and the International Professional Practice Framework (IPPF). He was also a member of several task forces, most recently serving as a representative on The IIA’s IPPF Oversight Council. As a team leader for IIA Quality Services LLC, he applied his extensive expertise to conduct quality assurance reviews for global internal audit organizations. He received The IIA’s Bradford Cadmus Memorial Award in 2003 in recognition of his outstanding service to the internal audit profession.

Amid his many contributions to The IIA, Moore also was giving of himself, said Debi Roth, IIA Managing Director of Global Standards & Guidance.  “I remember when he would visit The IIA. He would make sure that he had the opportunity to walk around, say hello, or even give a hug to staff members.”

Wayne was president and CEO of Wayne G. Moore Consulting. For most of his career, he led the global internal audit activities at E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company. He also worked in public accounting at the former Arthur Young & Co.

Wayne is survived by his wife Paula and children, Stephanie and husband Stuart, Eric and wife Janice, and Melanie; step-daughters Perri and Danae; a brother, Greg; two sisters, Debbie and Marilyn; and four grandchildren. He was predeceased by his first wife and a granddaughter.

Visitation is 6-8 p.m. Aug. 31 and 9:30-10:30 a.m. Sept. 1 at Kuzo & Grieco Funeral Home, 250 W. State St., Kenneth Square, Penn. Mass will be held at 11 a.m. Sept. 1 at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 212 Meredith St., Kenneth Square.

The family asks that contributions in his memory be made to Willow Tree Hospice, 616 East Cypress St., Kennett Square, PA 19348, or to Wayne’s Warriors, a group of friends who will run the Philadelphia Half Marathon in November to benefit Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center.
