Canadian audit regulator appoints former Deloitte managing partner as new CEO

The Canadian Public Accountability Board (CPAB) has appointed former managing partner for leadership development and succession at Deloitte Canada Carol Paradine as its new chief executive officer, effective 1 March 2018.

Paradine takes over from CEO Brian Hunt, a founding director of CPAB who is retiring after being in the role for 9 years. Hunt will continue as chair of the International Forum of Independent Audit Regulators (IFIAR), with CPAB’s support, until his term ends in April 2019.

CPAB chair Nick LePan welcomed Paradine to the role on behalf of the board: “We look forward to Carol’s leadership in ensuring CPAB remains a world class audit regulator as it continues to drive improvements in the quality of Canadian audits.”

“I am excited about the opportunity to join CPAB and to drive its mission to contribute to public confidence in the financial reporting of public issuers,” Paradine added.
