Robert E. Denham, chairman of the Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF) Board of Trustees, has announced that Teresa S. Polley has been named President and Chief Operating Officer of the FAF, effective immediately. Polley had been serving as Chief Operating Officer on an interim basis for several months.
