Ian Ball Appointed as Chairman, CIPFA International
(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) LONDON, Sept. 20 -- The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy issued the following news release:
CIPFA is delighted to announce that Ian Ball, the former CEO of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), is to be appointed as Chairman, CIPFA International with effect from 1 October, 2013. He will work with the Institute Council and Management Team focusing in particular on CIPFA's international growth and development.
After ten years at the helm of IFAC, Mr Ball will bring tremendous knowledge of the global accounting profession to CIPFA. However, his name is also synonymous, like CIPFA's, with the drive to improve public financial management in governments around the world.
Rob Whiteman, CIPFA's incoming Chief Executive, said
"Ian is renowned for both his deep knowledge of the profession and his abiding passion for improving public financial management. His expertise and guidance will be invaluable as we work to accelerate and expand CIPFA's international growth and development. We are thrilled to have him working with our team."
Speaking about his appointment, Ian Ball said
"It's a tremendously exciting prospect to be working with CIPFA and supporting its work to improve global public financial management. The Institute is uniquely placed to help governments develop stronger financial management practices. But there is still a huge challenge to get all governments to take their financial responsibilities seriously.
"The sovereign debt crisis has exposed both poor accounting and auditing practices and precariously fragile public finances in many countries. I relish the opportunity to be part of a team committed not only to promoting urgent action on reform, but also offering practical solutions. Securing stronger financial management is key to ensuring stability in fiscal policy and, more importantly, the delivery of public services.'
