ASB appoints interim chairman

An interim chairman has been appointed to the Accounting Standards Board after Ian Mackintosh’s departure last week.

Roger Marshall takes on the top role at the ASB. The former PwC senior partner has audited FTSE 100 companies, and was chairman of the firm’s corporate reporting task force in 20008/2009.

In May he joined sister body the Professional Oversight Board. He is also a director of Old Mutual.

“Roger brings with him an enormous wealth of professional expertise and a keen interest in technical accounting issues that will be valuable to the Accounting Standards Board at this important time in the evolution of national and global standards,” said FRC chairman Baroness Hogg.

He takes up the role with immediate effect. A further announcement regarding a permanent appointment is expected in “due course”.
