The Interim Nominating Committee was formed in February 2018 to conduct the nominations process for the next Chair of the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) and make a recommendation to the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) Board and the Public Interest Oversight Board (PIOB). The Committee is chaired by Ryozo Himino, Vice Minister for International Affairs, Financial Services Agency (Japan), and comprised of four members and two observers.
The Committee held its inaugural meeting on March 28 in New York to finalize the position description, selection process, and timeline. The Interim Nominating Committee’s mandate ceases once the selection process for the next IAASB Chair is completed. The Interim Nominating Committee was reinstated to conduct a new search after the designated appointee decided not to assume the post for personal reasons.
The Committee follows an open and transparent process to select the most suitable candidate for the position.
IAASB Chair Search
The global search for an exceptional individual to lead the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) has been restarted and applications from qualified candidates around the globe are now being accepted.
The Interim Nominating Committee is looking for exceptional candidates to fill the position of the Chair of the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) for 2019-2021. Successful candidates should have significant, senior-level experience and effective leadership, diplomacy, communication, and strategic skills; demonstrated professional competency; and a strong commitment to the IAASB’s public interest mission.
Interested candidates should view complete job description and apply by January 31, 2019.
Protecting applicant confidentiality is one of the Interim Nominating Committee's most important priorities throughout the IAASB Chair search process. The Interim Nominating Committee members are bound by a confidentiality agreement to keep applicant names and information strictly confidential to avoid putting any current positions in jeopardy, and to protect the Interim Nominating Committee’s objectivity. Selected candidates’ names and CVs will only be shared with those involved in the approval process with the individual’s permission.
The Interim Nominating Committee comprises seven members, including the chair and two observers. The chair is appointed by the Monitoring Group and is independent of both the PIOB and IFAC. Three members, including one observer, were nominated by the PIOB and three members, including one observer, were nominated by IFAC, subject to approval of the Monitoring Group. Members with observer status have speaking but not voting rights.
