Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 14, 2013
Steven Randall, Managing Partner of Vonya Global LLC, has been named The Institute of Internal Auditors Chicago Chapter New Member of the Year for 2012-2013. The New Member of the Year Award is awarded for the outstanding contributions made by a new member of the IIA, new IIA Chicago Chapter Board of Governors member, Officer, or other Chapter volunteer during the current year. Mr. Randall won the award for his role serving as a member of The IIA Chicago Chapter’s Board of Governors and his contributions made to the association in his role as the Social Media Committee Chairman, his role on the Career Assistance Program, his support of the IIA Chicago Chapter’s Annual Seminar planning committee, and other contributions.
Included in Mr. Randall’s nomination was the following statement: “Steve is probably the most active Board of Governors member. He serves as the Social Media chair, as a member of the Career Assistance Program committee, and numerous other activities outside of the IIA. Steve’s enthusiasm is endless and he is always coming up with innovative ideas for his committees. Steve has my vote for New Member of the Year hands down! I wish all our members had the passion Steve has!”
Here is a brief note from Mr. Randall himself after the award: “I was honored to be nominated for the New Member of the Year Award and delighted to have won. My work stems from a passion to create solutions that will advance the profession of internal audit. As many know, I have been an advocate for Internal Audit’s use of Social Media to share and advance. The IIA motto is “Progress through Sharing.” Consistent with this motto, Social Media provides Internal Auditors access to information being shared by content experts around the world. An example is Big Data. There seems to be a lot of talk these days around Big Data. Unfortunately in its current state, getting any value from Big Data is mostly a fairy tale (http://www.vonyaglobal.com/internal-audit/problem-big-data-data-analytics/). However, if you go to Twitter and follow Big Data you will find examples of companies sharing ways they have derived value from Big Data. Twitter and other Social Media applications provide opportunities for Internal Auditors to share and collaborate. While I am honored to accept this award, my work has only just begun and I will continue my efforts to advance and promote the Internal Audit profession”.
