IAASB reappoints CAG chair

The International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) has reappointed Linda de Beer as chair of the Consultative Advisory Group (CAG) until 31 March 2015.

De Beer is a visiting professor in audit and accounting at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, and a member of the King Committee on Corporate Governance.

"The CAG plays a vital role in ensuring that recipients of assurance services, including preparers and users of financial information as well as regulators, have an appropriate voice in the process of setting standards," De Beer said.

The CAG's mission is to provide strategic and technical advice in the public interest to the IAASB and is formed by 32 stakeholders with an interest in international auditing and assurance.

Karin French, a managing partner of international standards at Grant Thornton US, has also been appointed to the IAASB for a three-year term effective 1 January 2014.

French is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and previously served as the national managing partner and the assistant national managing partner of Grant Thornton's Professional Standards Group.
