Smith’s appointment to the global standard setter, as one of two part-time members on the board, was announced by Paul Volcker, chairman of International Accounting Standards Committee Foundation trustees, the oversight body of the IASB.

According to the IASB, Smith is an expert on standard-setting issues – in his role at Deloitte he consults with the firm’s national office and oversees the development of guidance on accounting matters.

Volcker said of Smith: ‘[He] understands the accounting issues facing auditors and preparers today and can bring a practical perspective on many of the difficult questions being addressed by the IASB.’
