DENVER – The National Intergovernmental Audit Forum recently recognized Denver Auditor Timothy M. O’Brien, CPA, for his years of contributions to leadership in government.

The national organization awarded the David M. Walker Excellence in Government Accountability Award to three recipients — one at the federal level, one at the state level, and Auditor O’Brien representing the local level of government auditors.

“I am humbled by this recognition,” Auditor O’Brien said. “We don’t do the work we do to win awards, but recognition like this tells me I’m on the right track in serving the people of Denver with the highest auditing standards.”

The National Intergovernmental Audit Forum says it helps connect audit executives at all levels of government to “improve coordination, communication, and cooperation among members, private sector firms, and other accountability organizations worldwide.”

According to the organization, winners of the award must have demonstrated leadership to improve government performance and accountability, implemented innovative techniques to create a positive future for government and the audit profession, and adhered to the core values of collaboration, professionalism, and integrity.

Auditor O’Brien has more than 40 years of auditing and accounting experience and has supported accountability in government at both the local and state levels. He is a licensed Certified Public Accountant and holds the designations of Chartered Financial Analyst and Chartered Global Management Accountant. He believes every member of government should be held accountable to the people they serve.

“Your leadership, innovation, and collaboration have been just outstanding and provide a good role model for our communities,” Comptroller General of the United States Gene L. Dodaro said while presenting the award.
