FAF appoints GASB members

The US Financial Accounting Federation (FAF) has appointed William Fish and James Brown to the Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB).

Brown, auditor of governments and government organisations, was appointed for a five year term and will succeed James Williams at the end of June.

Fish, an investment manager and analyst, has been appointed to a four-and-a-half-year term and will succeed board member Michael Belsky.

GASB chairman Robert Attmore said Fish brings in experience as a securities professional, “both as an investment manager and analyst specialising in municipal securities”.

“Jim Brown has specialised in government accounting and auditing for nearly 40 years, serving as an auditor and a part-time educator. We’re very pleased to welcome them both to the board and I look forward to their informed perspectives on the important issues facing the GASB,” he said.

The GASB is the independent, private-sector organisation that sets accounting and financial reporting standards for state and local governments in the US.
