Meet your new FASB Board MemberPosted: September 6, 2016
Christine Ann Botosan is the newest member of the FASB, joining on July 1, 2016. You can see more of her background here. Here are a few highlights:
- Botosan has spent her career in academia; her background does not list work as an auditor or a preparer of financial statements.
- Botosan is a Certified Valuation Analyst. This is an interesting skill to add to the Board as it continues to debate the future of fair value accounting.
- Botosan is a Chartered Professional Accountant; that is she is a Canadian CPA.
She will be the only non-U.S. CPA on the current Board and to my knowledge is the first Canadian Chartered Accountant to serve on the Board.
