About the Speaker – Gary Khan
At university, Gary found his passion for risk management completing a Bachelors of Commerce with a double major in both Risk and Insurance Management, and Human Resource Management. Soon after completing his degree, he began his career at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) as a risk management consultant, and quickly became a specialist in the field. In this capacity, he worked on various large clients in the Mining, Manufacturing, Medical, Financial, Entertainment and Governmental industries gaining extensive insight into risk management practices across each of these domains, both from a strategic and operational risk management perspective.
In addition, Gary was provided with the opportunity to gain experience in the following Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) domains: Internal Audit, Combined (Integrated) Assurance, Governance Audits, Maturity Assessments, Compliance, and GRC Framework development. By the end of his tenure at PwC, Gary was leading his own advisory engagements, and was working with several software partners at the time including SAP, CURA, BarnOwl, Bwise, and ISOmetrix.
The next challenge for Gary, was to join CQS GRC Solution (Pty) Ltd (CQS), where he became a SAP functional consultant with a speciality in SAP Process Control and SAP Risk Management. After a short while at the company Gary became a Solution Architect, leading implementation projects at several large mining houses.
A few years later, EOH Mthombo (Pty) Ltd, the SAP subsidiary of EOH Holdings Limited (EOH), acquired the SAP team from CQS. Gary joined EOH as a Lead Solution Architect, where he led and mentored other Solution Architects on large scale projects including international projects in Africa and the Middle East. Now Gary heads up a team of Governance, Risk and Compliance consultants and has been charged with building an advisory team under the EOH GRC Solutions Business Unit.
