Managing Director Christine Lagarde of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) today announced her intention to appoint Clare Brady as Director of the Fund’s Office of Internal Audit and Inspection (OIA).

Her previous positions include that of Auditor of the Bank of England and Managing Director of Group Audit for Deutsche Bank. Ms. Brady’s distinguished career has also included positions at the UK’s National Audit Office and several other major private sector institutions including Barclays Capital, HSBC, Republic National Bank of New York and First National Bank of Chicago.

She holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Economics from the London School of Economics.
