IFRS Interpretations Committee members appointed

The trustees of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) have appointed four members to the IFRS Interpretations Committee, the body that aims to build consensus on financial reporting issues and accounting treatments.

The four members will serve for three years, effective from 1 July, after which their terms can be extended for another one-year term.

Two of them work for the automotive industry: Mikael Hagström, who is Volvo Group head of corporate financial reporting in Sweden, and Bonnie Van Etten, Fiat and Chrysler Group's global head of technical accounting and accounting research in the US.

The other two members are Carl Douglas, a corporate controller at Brazilian infrastructure company CCR Group, and Bruce Mackenzie, managing partner of W Consulting International, the South African financial reporting training company.

The four newly appointed members succeed Luca Cencioni, Jean Paré, Joanna Perry and Scott Taub.

Charlotte Pissaridou, a managing director at Goldman Sachs International, was reappointed for a second three-year term.

The IFRS Interpretation Committee has 14 voting members and meets every two months in London, the next one scheduled for 13 and 14 May.
