The Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF), the oversight body of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), has appointed Robert Stewart as vice president of communications and Grace Hinchman as vice president of government affairs and external relations.
“We’re making these changes to help us better fulfil our strategic commitment to our relationships with investors and all of our stakeholders and to better communicate to them the goals, priorities, and activities of the FAF,” FAF president and chief executive Teresa Polley said.
Stewart worked for 12 years as a reporter and Washington correspondent for the Los Angeles Times and was previously senior vice president of financial services at The Wade Group, a public affairs and communications agency.
Hinchman spent nine years at Financial Executives International and joined the FAF in 2009. She will develop and execute strategies to further strengthen FAF’s outreach to these and other stakeholders and, working with the communications team, keep them informed about the important work of the FAF, FASB, and Government Accounting Standards Board, the FAF said.
