Council member biography - Carol Warburton

  • Admitted to ICAEW: 1995
  • Joined Council: 2018
  • Election Constituency: South Wales


A Cardiff girl born and bred and now a progressed welsh learner, I moved to Birmingham to train, working for the Big 4 in audit and assurance before moving back to Wales in 2000. I have broad business experience and advise businesses across a wide spectrum of services and industries. I am primarily an audit specialist and the National Head of Audit for Baldwins. My career has been entirely practice based.

I have been heavily involved in Welsh business life and simultaneously involved with ICAEW in various capacities. I have been a member of the South Wales district society for 13 years and was the Society President in 2015. I am also the Support Member (Practice) for Wales. This is a role that I have undertaken for more than 15 years and in which I hope to have made a difference by assisting members in difficulty find a route through their issue – be they professional or private.

In other capacities I am a member of Audit Faculties Board and Chair of ICAEW Audit Committee.
