GE Internal Audit Mission

"We are a diverse team, elevating performance and reinforcing trust in GE. Through Lean, Data driven techniques, we provide innovative risk insights and collaborative solutions, enabling GE to unlock value and to Build a World That Works."

Brandi Thomas, Chief Audit Executive, and Chief Diversity Officer - GE

GE is in the midst of a significant and public transformation of its portfolio, leadership, operations, and culture. One of the top priorities within this transformation is the ongoing build of GE’s Internal Audit function, GEAR (GE Audit & Risk Advisory Services). This function will be aligned and incorporated into each business as an independent entity to provide ongoing support. This will enable effective, compliant, and legal spin offs of each business over the course of the transformation plan while providing continuous assurance and advisory work with an expanded risk focus.  
GEAR, with the help and guidance of Brandi Thomas’ leadership, is currently evolving the function through a set of core audit principles rooted deeply in GE’s cultural beliefs– Humility, Transparency and Focus. In combination, these principles allow the company to maintain a keen focus on continuous improvement, healthy disruption, and transformation in every aspect of the organization, including Internal Audit. Brandi and her leadership team aim to honor the integrity of these beliefs within a modernized Internal Audit function.
GEAR’s vision is to firmly establish Internal Audit as a diverse team that helps to elevate GE’s performance and reinforce trust in the company. Leveraging lean and data-driven techniques, GEAR will provide innovative risk insights and collaborative solutions that enable GE to unlock value and build a world that works.

It is really a once in al lifetime to build a new group within a 100+ year old company with global visibility. As GE hires for this new team, the focus is on building a world class team, I characterize as building an All Start team. We have the opportunity to hire the best of the best!”
