Thoufiq Kutty

Assistant Vice President for Internal Audit and Enterprise Risk Management & Chief Compliance Officer

Thoufiq Kutty joined the Finance and Administration division as the Assistant Vice President for Internal Audit and Enterprise Risk Management & Chief Compliance Officer in August 2021.

Thoufiq is responsible for the design, organization, and management of University-wide programs of Compliance, Enterprise Risk Management, and Internal Audit.  He reports directly to the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer and to the Board of Trustees’ audit committee chair.

The Office of Compliance works to cultivate an organizational culture of compliance, manage a formal compliance program that encourages ethical conduct and a commitment to compliance with the law and University policies, and maintain accountability for these obligations. The Internal Audit function aims to provide the Board of Trustees and senior University administration with an independent assessment of the University’s system of internal controls. The Enterprise Risk Management program is informed by these efforts and creates a uniform process for evaluating key risk areas.

Thoufiq joined UChicago from Walmart, where he served as Vice President, Global Ethics & Compliance Risk & Monitoring. Thoufiq was also previously a litigation associate at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP in Chicago. Thoufiq received his law degree from UChicago and his undergraduate degree from Northwestern University.
