Topeka Barbara Hinton, the longtime head of the Legislative Division of Post Audit, is leaving Kansas to become deputy director for performance audits for the Washington State Auditor’s Office.
Hinton, of Lawrence, will leave in June.
She has been with the post audit division since 1977 and its top auditor since 1991.
During her career, she has conducted and led performance audits that have been nationally recognized for their high quality. She has been active in numerous professional audit organizations, including a term as president and several years as an executive committee member of the National State Auditors Association.
Washington State Auditor Brian Sonntag said he is looking forward to the contributions Hinton can make.
