PCAOB Announces Investor Advisory Group Members

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) announced March 1, 2013, twenty new and reappointed members of its Investor Advisory Group (IAG). These members will serve three-year terms ending in October 2015.

The Board established the IAG in July 2009 as a forum for the investor community to provide views and advice on matters affecting investors and the work of the PCAOB.
"The Board has an important mandate to protect the investing public's interest through high-quality auditing," said James R. Doty, PCAOB chairman. "IAG members provide critical insight and advice on how the Board can and should meet that charge."
The members of the IAG are listed below. Member biographies and information about the group are available on the IAG page on the PCAOB website.
"The IAG has been a benefit to the PCAOB because of the expertise and thoughtfulness of individuals from the investment community who volunteer their time to serve as members," said Steven B. Harris, PCAOB board member and IAG chairman.
The PCAOB issued a request for IAG nominations in August 2012 and received more than forty applications. Membership in the advisory group is personal to the member, and the duties and responsibilities cannot be delegated to others.
Questions about the group may be directed to Special Counsel to Board Member Nina Mojiri-Azad and IAG Chairman Steven B. Harris at MojiriazadN@pcaobus.org or (202) 207-9035.
