The Trustees of the IFRS Foundation, the oversight body of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), announced today appointments and reappointments to the IFRS Interpretations Committee.
Five members of the Interpretations Committee complete their term at the end of June 2011 and have been reappointed for a further three-year term. They are: Joanna Perry, Luca Cencioni, Jean Paré, Margaret Smyth and Scott Taub.
Two new members have been appointed to the Interpretations Committee:
- Charlotte Pissaridou, Managing Director, Head of Accounting Policy for Europe, Middle East and Africa, Goldman Sachs International, UK; and
- Kazuo Yuasa, General Manager, IFRS Office, Corporate Finance Unit, Fujitsu Limited, Japan.
Ms Pissaridou has been appointed to fill the vacancy that will arise when Jean-Louis Lebrun completes his second term at the end of June 2011. Ms Pissaridou has been appointed for a three-year term. Mr Yuasa has been appointed to replace Takatsugu Ochi, who has been appointed as a member of the IASB from 1 July 2011. Mr Yuasa’s appointment is initially for one year, being the remaining period of Mr Ochi’s term as a member of the Interpretations Committee. Ms Pissaridou and Mr Yuasa will both be eligible for reappointment.
Commenting on the appointments, Sir Bryan Nicholson, Chair of the Nominating Committee of the Trustees, said:
I am delighted that Charlotte Pissaridou and Kazuo Yuasa have agreed to join the IFRS Interpretations Committee, and that Joanna, Luca, Jean, Peggy and Scott have all agreed to serve second terms. I want to thank Jean-Louis Lebrun for his long service and contribution to the work of the Committee. I also want to thank Takatsugu Ochi for his contribution to the work of the Committee and to wish him well in his new role as a member of the IASB.
