FRC CEO, Sir Jon Thompson said, “I welcome Pauline’s appointment and look forward to working with her as the UKEB establishes itself as a key influencer in the development of accounting standards, both in the UK and internationally.

As an independent body, the UKEB will have a critical role to play in the development of and endorsing international accounting standards, helping to ensure the UK retains its status as a global hub for business, attracting inward capital and investment.”
