Ian Smith

Partner, Audit & Assurance

Ian is a partner in our Assurance practice and leads the Controls Advisory team.  He recently moved to Sydney from Deloitte London where he had been a partner for nearly 20 years.  During his time in London he established and led the UK Corporate Assurance practice, a team of professionals focussed on providing accounting, controls and transaction support to non-audit clients. 

His personal specialism is supporting clients through large scale disruptive events, such as IPOs and M&A where finance teams need to evolve and develop their internal processes, controls and governance to adapt to new ownership, market and regulatory demands or simply to larger scale operations.  Ian also is experienced in supporting clients as they design and implement new control frameworks eg US Sox or as a result of the implementation of new ERP systems requiring redesign of internal processes and controls.
