The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board announced that deputy chief auditor Laura J. Phillips will leave the board later this year.

For the past four years, Phillips has been responsible for providing technical direction on the development of the board’s standards, including ensuring that standards and guidance were communicated to auditors of public companies and other parties. Most recently, she led efforts to implement the internal control provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

The board said that she has not yet accepted another position, though she said in a statement that she was looking forward to applying her experience in a private sector setting.

Prior to joining the PCAOB in 2003, Phillips was a member of the professional staff of Ernst and Young. She graduated from Miami University in 1991.
