Shane Silva has been with Protiviti for the past 16 years – or for more than three quarters of its operations in Australia – having joined as a graduate in 2007. He currently leads the firm’s IT audit, project assurance and data governance solutions, serving large-sized clients across multiple sectors.

Andrew Dacombe likewise joined Protiviti as a graduate almost 15 years ago, and now heads up the firm’s Brisbane office. During his career with the firm, Dacombe has amassed significant experience advising clients on internal audit, risk management, governance, and business processes among other areas.

Rich Turley has been with Protiviti in Sydney for the past four and a half years after returning from various roles in the UK. A newly appointed managing director in the firm’s risk & compliance and internal audit practice, Turley previously spent seven years with Westpac, before which he was with EY in London for almost a decade.

Matt Pirera joined Protiviti’s risk and compliance team out of Melbourne at the beginning of last year, crossing from a regulatory affairs and strategy lead role at NAB. Prior to his three years with the bank, Pirera spent a decade at KPMG, including an eighteen month stint with the firm in Toronto.

Jane Tumurbaatar becomes a director in Protiviti’s Sydney office, from where she serves as the firm’s Risk and Control Uplift Solution lead with expertise in operational risk management. Joining in early 2020 from the Commonwealth Bank, Tumurbaatar previously spent five years between EY and Deloitte.

Elly Maddy has been with Protiviti in Melbourne for the past six and a half years, before which she spent more than four years at Deloitte. Maddy is a member of the firm’s internal audit & risk consulting team with a focus on hospitals and healthcare, a sector in which she previously spent half a decade.

Vikas Sharma crossed to Protiviti from PwC in mid-2019 after spending three years at the latter, before which he spent time with Cisco and DXC Technology. Sharma serves clients across a range of sectors in strategy design, operational improvement and technology implementation among other areas.

Deepa Amrat-Bradley has meanwhile been recruited as a director in Protiviti’s technology consulting team, bringing more than two decades of program delivery and cyber leadership experience for numerous high-profile organisations across the UK, Middle East and APAC, in particular for the UK government.

“Wonderful to start 2023 with a brilliant new chapter in Australia with a phenomenal global team of truly admirable professionals who strive to achieve collaborative success in business consulting,” stated Amrat-Bradley, who joins Protiviti after eighteen months as APAC cybersecurity strategy lead for SEEK.
