Ex-IFAC CEO moves to CIPFA

FORMER IFAC CEO Ian Ball is to serve as chairman of CIPFA International.

Ball will work with the institute’s council and management team, focusing on its growth and development.

He has spent ten years leading IFAC, with CIPFA’s incoming chief executive Rob Whiteman welcoming his knowledge of the profession and “abiding passion for improving public financial management”.

Ball said the institute was “uniquely placed to help governments develop stronger financial management practices”.

“The sovereign debt crisis has exposed both poor accounting and auditing practices and precariously fragile public finances in many countries,” said Ball.

“I relish the opportunity to be part of a team committed not only to promoting urgent action on reform, but also offering practical solutions. Securing stronger financial management is key to ensuring stability in fiscal policy and, more importantly, the delivery of public services.”
