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.
