The Territory’s newly-appointed auditor general, and the first woman to hold the role, has been named as the 2014 Telstra Northern Territory Business Woman of the Year.

The winner, Julie Crisp was a partner at global professional services firm Deloitte and head of its Assurance and Advisory division in Darwin, before the appointment. When NT Chief Minister Adam Giles announced Ms Crisp’s five-year appointment as auditor general in August, he said she had a wealth of professional experience and academic qualifications for the role.

During her 16 years at Deloitte, she was recognised internally for her inspirational leadership, client service and staff development, never missing an annual revenue target and significantly growing service revenue.“It is an inspirational and energising work environment with an equal emphasis on our clients and our people. We have fun while solving the problems that keep our clients awake at night,” says Ms Crisp.

“I identified significant potential for growth in providing business process solutions to centres beyond Darwin – businesses everywhere are seeking to deliver the same outcomes more effectively.”
