IASB chief to take ICAS presidency

Sir David Tweedie nominated for VP role at ICAS and will serve as president from 2012

Sir David Tweedie

IASB chairman Sir David Tweedie has been nominated as vice-president of
ICAS.

He takes up presidency of the Scottish institute in 2012.

Current president Douglas Nisbet said Sir David was a “global leader in the
accounting profession”.

“His work at the IASB has been instrumental in moving towards the first truly
global, high quality and comparable accounting standards. He will be an
outstanding president for ICAS after he stands down from the IASB chairmanship
in 2011,” said Nisbet.

Sir David said that, although the institute wasn’t the biggest in the world,
it is “highly influential”.

“It continues to advance the public interest development of accounting by
contributing some of the best quality ideas and thinking within the profession,
” he said.

The vice-presidency is largely honorary, and would not interfere with his
current responsibilities, said ICAS.
