The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) has appointed Jim Dolinar as chairman of its financial Reporting executive committee (FinREC), effective November 2014.

Dolinar is managing partner of the assurance professional practice at Crowe Horwath US. He also serves as the vice-chair on the Center for Audit Quality’s (CAQ) professional practice executive committee and is a member of the CAQ’s research advisory board.

FinREC, which serves as the AICPA’s official voice on financial reporting matters and develops industry-specific accounting guidance, will benefit from Dolinar’s knowledge and leadership, said outgoing FinREC chairman Richard Paul.

"His experience includes quality control functions such as matters related to accounting, auditing, ethics, independence, inspections and monitoring as well as practice matters related to the Securities and Exchange Commission and other regulatory bodies," Paul added.
