Michel Kee Partner | Governance, Risk & Compliance
There is a growing need for advice and support in the field of (corporate) governance, risk management, internal control, compliance and internal audit, both in the private and public sector. With my rich ‘in business’ experience, I represent a GRIC service approach that is characterized by ‘business sense’, ‘teamwork’ and ‘pragmatics’.
Education and working experience
After completing the study at HES in Amsterdam (1984), I studied during my employment at KPMG at the Nivra for ‘register-accountant’ (RA in 1989). During the 16 years at KPMG I gained experience in both the general audit and consultancy practice.
In 2000, I moved to the business industry, fulfilling leadership roles in internal audit teams at international companies (9 years at Heineken, 4 years at TNT and 2.5 years at Orpic in Oman).
As GRIC partner at Mazars, I return to the consultancy enriched with the ‘in business’ experience.
My expertise lies in internal audit and – together with the Mazars GRIC team – I support clients on establishing, transforming and executing (co/outsourcing) internal audit activities.
Furthermore, I have wide experience in the area of corporate governance, risk management, internal control frameworks, compliance frameworks, ethics programs etc.
Specific client and sector experience
During the 16 years at KPMG I have served many small to large clients, covering various sectors.
I gained specific experience in the financial sector, both banks and insurance companies and was active for the Market Group Financial Services for 3 years.
The 16 years ‘in business’ experience I acquired in the sectors:
- Consumer Products (Heineken);
- Transport & Logistics (TNT); and
- Oil & Gas (Orpic/Oman).
Moreover, in my leadership roles I gained valuable international experience and worked with different cultures.
Since the end of 2014 I am Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) in the Netherlands. Previously I was a member of the Board of IIA for 5 years of which Chairman for the last 3 years. Furthermore, I was a member of the Corporate Governance Committee (2006 - 2010) and Internal Audit Committee (2003 - 2009) of Nivra (NBA).
