CIPFA, the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy, is delighted to announce that Rachael Tiffen, Head of Counter Fraud at CIPFA, has won the Stella Walsh Award for Long Term Commitment to Preventing Fraud.
Rachael was nominated by CIPFA for her tireless commitment to serving the wider counter fraud arena.
Rachael’s counter fraud career began 20 years ago, during which time she has consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment to innovation and improving standards across the counter fraud profession. She has since become a highly regarded and nationally respected counter fraud expert.
Rob Whiteman, CIPFA chief executive said:
“I thoroughly agree that Rachael deserves this recognition, and all of us here at CIPFA are extremely proud of her for winning this award. Quite apart from the tremendous achievements she had before joining CIPFA, Rachael has been the mastermind behind our CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre and over the course of its first three years, she has created a diverse and innovative programme, which is now one of the lynchpins in the public sector’s fight against fraud and corruption.”
