Andersen executives linked to Enron case

Three Andersen executives, who also hold top positions on US accountancy bodies, have been indirectly linked to the Enron case.

John Stewart, Andersen’s director of US accounting standards and a member of the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Emerging Issues Task Force, received a copy of the now infamous document destruction email from Nancy Temple, an Andersen in-house lawyer, according to an article in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal.

The email, which reminded employees of the firm’s document destruction and retention policy, also went to Andersen’s Amy Ripepi, who is the head of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ SEC Regulations Committee.

Quoting unnamed sources the Journal also said the document was sent to Michael Odom, Andersen’s head of risk management in the firm’s Houston office.

Andersen, FASB and AICPA had not returned calls to AccountancyAge.com at time of publishing.
