Karin French, Grant Thornton LLP‘s national managing partner of international standards, will begin serving on the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board starting next year.
French has been elected to a three-year term at IAASB, which establishes global standards for auditing quality control, assurance, review and associated services, Grant Thornton said Wednesday.
Trent Gazzaway, Grant Thornton national managing partner for audit services, said Karin is well positioned to represent Grant Thornton on the respected board.
French has previously held a similar role at Grant Thornton’s professional standards practice and served as partner-in-charge of its Securities and Exchange Commission regulatory matters group.
The more than two-decade industry veteran is a certified public accountant in Virginia, Illinois and Oklahoma.
