French profession elects a ‘cosmopolitan’ president

Philippe Arraou has been elected as the new president of the French Institute of Chartered Accountants (CSOEC), effective 11 March.

Prior to his election Arraou was the vice-president for European and international affairs at CSOEC and he will take over from Joseph Zorgniotti for a two-year mandate.

Arraou was elected by the CSOEC high council which counts 69 members themselves elected by the institute's members every 4 years.

With this new appointment the French institute anticipates to see a rise in its international profile, as European and international affairs are at the core of Arraou's agenda.

Prior to the election, a CSOEC staff told The Accountant that international issues are Arraou's main concern and favourite subject.

This was quickly confirmed by Arraou himself, who commenting on his election said: "My action will be firmly focused on the international dimension of the profession."

A CSOEC spokesperson confirmed that some cooperation has already been engaged with British Institutes thanks to him.
