John Smith, financial director of the BBC and 2001 Accountancy Age Finance Director of the year, has been appointed to the Accounting Standards Board.

He will also take over the chairmanship of the ASB’s public sector and not-for-profit committee when incumbent chairman Ken Wild steps down. His appointment will last until 30 November 2004.

In addition to his role as director of finance, property and business affairs at the BBC, he is also a member of the 100 Group of Finance Directors.
