FEE steps up workload

FEE, the organisation for the European accountancy profession, has appointed a deputy president in response to its growing workload in the wake of Enron.

FEE Council has unanimously supported the proposal of president Goran Tidstrom to appoint David Devlin as FEE’s deputy president.

Devlin, advisor to the Irish government at the EU’s committee on auditing, has been a member of FEE since 1991.

The new role is designed to help FEE meet the increased focus on financial reporting.

Devlin said: ‘FEE’s significant contribution to, and positive influence on the development of Europe’s capital markets must be emphasised.

‘The Commission’s financial services action plan represents a great opportunity for the profession to once again demonstrate its integrity, expertise and relevance to the public interest, to the wider business community and to the European institutions’.
