FEE appoints Keegan replacement

European accountancy body FEE and the ICAEW's Financial Reporting Committee have both appointed influential accountants to fill gaps caused by the departure of Mary Keegan to the Accounting Standards Board.

UK members of the Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies have appointed Arthur Andersen partner Robert Hodgkinson to represent the UK profession on the council of FEE. He follows in the footsteps of Keegan who joined FEE council in 1997 and has now accepted the chair of the Accounting Standards Board.

Hodgkinson will leave his role as chairman of the ICAEW’s Financial Reporting Committee and will be succeeded by PricewaterhouseCooper’s partner Ian Wright.

Commenting on his appointment, Hodgkinson said: ‘I hope I can be a worthy successor to Mary Keegan who has worked tirelessly on behalf of the UK accounting profession in Europe.

‘The next few years are going to be crucial as the EU gears up to involvement international accounting standards by 2006 and develop its approach to auditor independence.’

Wright, who is a partner in PwC’s Global Reporting team, will continue to head up the Financial Reporting Committee’s work in finalising guidance on preparing prospective financial information.Links
