IASB senior manager rejoins Duff & Phelps

EX-IASB SENIOR technical manager Hilary Eastman has joined insolvency and valuation business Duff & Phelps.

Eastman previously worked at the company but left seven years ago to join the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). While there she led the organisation’s project to develop IFRS 13 which is an accounting standard to measure fair value.

Beginning her career in PwC’s corporate value division Eastman developed a particular focus on financial and tax reporting valuations. She moved from San Francisco to Amsterdam in 2003 and relocated to London in 2005 when Duff & Phelps acquired Standard & Poor’s corporate value consulting group, which included PwC’s legacy valuation business.

At Duff & Phelps she will be director in the professional practice division and in her new role will focus on valuation issues relating to financial reporting under IFRS.

“We are pleased that Hilary has come full circle with Duff & Phelps, bringing her deep knowledge of complex financial issues and experience on the inside of cutting-edge regulatory activity to help our professionals and our clients navigate a wide range of challenging matters,” said Paul Barnes, managing director and global head of valuation advisory services at Duff & Phelps.
