French profession elects a ‘cosmopolitan’ president

By Vincent Huck

Philippe Arraou has been elected as the new president of the French Institute of Chartered Accountants (CSOEC), effective 11 March.

Prior to his election Arraou was the vice-president for European and international affairs at CSOEC and he will take over from Joseph Zorgniotti for a two-year mandate.

Arraou was elected by the CSOEC high council which counts 69 members themselves elected by the institute’s members every 4 years.

With this new appointment the French institute anticipates to see a rise in its international profile, as European and international affairs are at the core of Arraou’s agenda.

Prior to the election, a CSOEC staff told The Accountant that international issues are Arraou’s main concern and favourite subject.

This was quickly confirmed by Arraou himself, who commenting on his election said: "My action will be firmly focused on the international dimension of the profession."

A CSOEC spokesperson confirmed that some cooperation has already been engaged with British Institutes thanks to him.
