Adviser Moves to Advertising Field

Julie Connors, Chief Risk Officer & SVP, Audit, Interpublic Group

Julie Connors jumped from the role of adviser as a partner in the enterprise risk management practice at Deloitte to executing strategy as chief risk officer and senior vice president of audit for advertising's $6 billion Interpublic Group, the holding company for agencies including McCann Erickson.

"As a service provider, you think you know everything about a particular industry that you've been working in for years, but you still learn so much when you're looking at things from a different perspective," Connors says. "I miss being part of the revenue stream because there's such a rush when you sell new business. But at the same time, it's been very rewarding to execute strategy."
