FASB appoints members to Emerging Issues Task Force

The US’ Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has appointed two new members to its Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF), effective immediately

The two new members are Kevin McBride, corporate controller and principal accounting officer at Intel Corporation, and Jeffrey Nickell, a partner at Deloitte. The EITF assists FASB in improving financial reporting through the timely identification, discussion and resolution of financial accounting issues. Members are chosen from a cross section of FASB stakeholders, including public accounting firms, preparers of financial statements, and users of financial statements.

EITF chair and FASB member Susan Cosper said, “On behalf of the EITF and the FASB, I am pleased to welcome Kevin McBride and Jeffrey Nickell to the Task Force. Each brings to his new role extensive experience in technical accounting issues, and we look forward to their contributions to EITF discussions.”

McBride and Nickell fill seats vacated by James Campbell, vice president and corporate controller of Alphabet, and Robert Uhl, a partner at Deloitte, whose EITF terms concluded. Cosper said, “Jim Campbell and Bob Uhl contributed valuable, expert insights to EITF discussions. On behalf of the FASB and the EITF, I am pleased to thank them for their service on the task force.”
