AICPA appoints Robert Dohrer as chief auditor

Robert Dohrer has been appointed chief auditor of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). He will succeed the AICPA’s vice president of professional standards – public accounting Charles Landes who plans to retire early next year.

Dohrer is currently global leader of quality and risk at RSM International and serves as chairman of the AICPA’s Assurance Services Executive Committee.

Internationally, Dohrer is IAASB’s chair of the Board’s Data Analytics Working Group, co-chairs the IAASB Group Audits Task Force and is a member of the IAASB Quality Control Task Force.

The AICPA has said Dohrer will join in October, three months before Landes retires, in order to make a smooth transition.

Association of International Certified Professional Accountants’ executive vice president for public practice Susan S. Coffey commented: “As chief auditor, Dohrer will serve as the AICPA’s expert on U.S. and international auditing, attestation, quality control, review, compilation and preparation standards, as well as internal control and enterprise risk management.

“He will lead the Public Accounting Professional Standards team to deliver high-quality standards, and will lead and provide strategic direction to the Auditing Standards Board and Accounting and Review Services Committee, in partnership with their chairs.”
