Anne Maher, the head of the Irish pensions regulator, has been appointed to the UK’s Professional Oversight Board for Accountancy.
Maher, chief executive of Ireland’s Pensions Board, is one of seven appointees to the board, set up to provide independent oversight of the auditing and accountancy profession.
Maher is a board member of the Irish Accounting and Auditing Supervisory Authority and the Irish Health Insurance Authority. She is also a member of the FTSE Policy Group as well as a governor of UK’s Pensions Policy Institute.
“I am very delighted with the quality and diversity of experience of the people we have been able to identify for the Board,” said Sir Bryan Nicholson, chairman of the Financial Reporting Council, of the new appointments.
