David Damant passed away in August 2020.
Mr. Damant’s career included decades of service in audit, accounting and investing and asset management. He was the first independent chair of the IAASB’s Consultative Advisory Group from 2004 to 2010. Upon his appointment, then-President of the International Federation of Accountants Rene Ricol said, “Damant has the experience and integrity to chair the IAASB CAG and present important public interest perspectives. High-quality auditing standards are needed in every part of the world to build investor confidence in capital markets. The support of independent regulators, users and preparers is critical to creating acceptance of the IAASB’s standards.”
