Oct 26, 2018

On October 26, 2018, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) announced that Martin Baumann will step down from role for personal reasons.

The global search for an exceptional leader to Chair the IAASB will be restarted by the Interim Nominating Committee.  Mr. Martin Baumann, who had been appointed to become Chair of the IAASB on January 1, 2019, has decided not to assume the post for personal reasons.

Prof. Arnold Schilder, whose term as IAASB Chairman is scheduled to conclude at end of 2018, has agreed to stay on through early 2019, as necessary, to ensure a smooth transition to a new Chair.

Review the press release on the IAASB's website.
