New deputy accountant named at US watchdog

Zoe-Vonna Palmrose, a professor of auditing at the University of Southern
California, has been named as the deputy chief accountant for professional
practice at the SEC.

Her role – which begins next week – will see her take charge of the agency’s
work on audit standards.

She will replace Andrew Bailey who left the SEC in December.

She previously has worked on preventing and detecting accounting fraud on
various task forces established by the American Institute of Certified Public
