Audit, tax and advisory firm Mazars Moores Rowland announced that Kariem Hoosain, the former CEO of the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors (IRBA), is to join the firm as Partner with effect from 1 January 2009. He will be joining Mazars in the Public Interest Entity (PIE) division.
“Kariem is a highly qualified professional with a broad range of experience gained over 15 years of executive and senior management positions in the TRC, the Office of the Auditor General and the IRBA, and will greatly enrich our firm,” says Hilton Saven, CEO of Mazars Moores Rowland.
Hoosain’s career has come full circle, says Saven, as his first position was with Mazars where he completed his articles then spent a further four years as a senior manager.
He left Mazars to serve in the public sector, joining the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), setting up its infrastructure and financial management functions. His responsibilities quickly grew to include the IT and HR functions as well.
He then joined the Office of the Auditor General in Pretoria as a senior manager involved in auditing the State Oil Companies and Intelligence Services, among a number of other strategic projects. He became a member of the OAG executive committee in 2003, and took on responsibility for all nine provincial business units.
He left the OAG to join IRBA in 2005, where he served as CEO for three years. He currently serves on the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA), the International Accounting Education Standards Board and is a council member of Durban University of Technology and the Council for Medical Schemes.
