October 5, 2009 at 3:33 pm Leave a comment

GRAPA staff writer Kathy B. spoke to Miguel during two weeks of internal auditor training, held in Luxembourg.

What is your background before becoming an internal auditor at your current employer?

“I have a degree in business administration and financial studies. I started to work as external auditor at KPMG and then was an internal auditor for LEAR automotive (NYSE: LEA).

What is your current position?

I am a SOX compliance manager. The main objective of my work is to maintain our internal controls system to ensure compliance with internal policies and SOX procedures i n a sustainable manner.

You travel a lot for your work. Is that a particular challenge?

I am glad my work includes travel because that is something I really enjoy. The multi-cultural environment of my workplace is something I appreciate. Working with people of different cultures and with different backgrounds is very enriching.

When you are not working, how do you like to spend your time?

I like books and reading. I am a basketball fan and I follow the NBA. The Los Angeles Lakers is my team, mainly because I like following fellow Spaniard Pau Gasol.

Has the GRAPA training provided you with any new insights?

The revenue assurance training was tailored for internal auditors and I found it very useful. We were shown an operating point of view of revenue assurance, which gives the internal auditor a better picture of how things are functioning. Understanding the Revenue Assurance roles and possibilities is crucial for the effectiveness of the SOX Compliance process. I took away some very useful knowledge with this training.
