ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. (Jan. 25, 2016) — Former Dow Chemical corporate auditor and internal auditing educator Doug Anderson, CIA, CRMA, is the new managing director for CAE solutions at The Institute of Internal Auditors.
Anderson, who took over the role earlier this month, brings a wealth of experience to The IIA, where he will focus on serving the unique needs of chief audit executives across all of The IIA’s product and service offerings.
In addition to extensive corporate experience, which included overseeing a staff of 73 at Dow’s global internal audit function, Anderson brings an impressive volunteer and teaching history to the post. Most recently, he was an accounting and finance executive-in-residence at Saginaw Valley (Mich.) State University and served as a consultant to the AEC.
“At a time when demands on chief audit executives are expanding rapidly, The IIA is extremely fortunate to add someone of Doug’s caliber and experience,” said IIA President and CEO Richard F.

Indeed, Anderson has been a high-profile ambassador for the profession, serving on the Standing Advisory Group of the Public Companies Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) and the COSO ERM Update Project Advisory Group. He also served on The IIA’s Board of Directors Executive Committee, The IIA’s North American Board of Directors, and as chairman of The IIA’s Professional Issues Committee. He was a member of both the Common Body of Knowledge (CBOK) and IPPF Relook committees.
