News brief, appointments: IIRC

The recently elected chairman of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), Tim Christen, has been appointed to the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC).

Christen was appointed chairman of the AICPA in October last year and is the CEO of Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, a US member firm.

"As part of Baker Tilly's leadership position in the profession, we continue to advocate a reporting environment that benefits our clients and the global economy," Christen said. "Alongside the AICPA, we support the work of the IIRC, which represents a critical shift in the way companies can convey success in a very fundamental way: the value they create for investors, stakeholders and society."

As a member of the council, Christen joins a global coalition of regulators, investors, companies, standard setters, the accounting profession and non-governmental organizations who come together to discuss and contribute to the direction and strategy of the IIRC.
