Ward, who recently worked on an IFAC taskforce to improve the investor confidence of the global accountancy profession, will succeed Rene Ricol as president in November.

Ward will head up the body’s work to increase the use of international auditing standards across the world, including the creation of an independent oversight body for the committee that writes IFAC’s auditing standards.

‘My priorities going forward are to do all I can to consolidate and strengthen international standards of accountancy practice and of corporate governance, ensuring excellence and integrity in all that we do,’ said Ward.
