Meet your new FASB Board Member

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.
