Audit Wales extends congratulations to the Chair of the Wales Audit Office Board, Dr Kathryn Chamberlain, on being awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the New Year Honours List 2024.
Kate was awarded the OBE in recognition of her public service in her role as Chief Executive of the Independent Monitoring Authority for the Citizens’ Rights Agreements.
Kate was appointed as a Non-executive Member and Chair of the Wales Audit Office Board in March 2023.
On behalf of everyone at Audit Wales, I am delighted to congratulate Kate on her award. Not only does it recognise her significant contribution to public service, it is a reminder to us of our good fortune in having someone of Kate’s calibre and track record as Chair of our Board.
I have been fortunate to work with many good teams during my career. My last post as Chief Executive of the IMA was no exception and I am delighted that this award recognises how much the organisation has achieved during its first three years. It is clear that with Audit Wales I have been fortunate again and I look forward to what we will achieve together over the next few years.
