The Accounting Standards Committee of Germany (ASCG) has announced that Professor Dr Andreas Barckow will become its next President. The Administrative Board of the ASCG unanimously supported his appointment last Friday. Professor Barckow will follow the long-standing and nationally and internationally highly regarded ASCG Chair Dr Elisabeth Knorr in this capacity.
Professor Barckow is currently Head of Deloitte's IFRS Centre of Excellence in Frankfurt and a member of the Global IFRS Leadership Team (GILT) of Deloitte. He is also member of the IFRS Technical Committee of the ASCG and of the Technical Experts Group (TEG) of the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG). Professor Barckow will step down from these committees on assuming his position as ASCG President; his term will begin on 1 March 2015.
“I would like to thank the Nominating Committee and the Administrative Board for the trust they are placing in me and look forward to tackling the new challenges together with Vice-President Peter Mißler and the ASCG's staff. At the same time, I would like to thank my current employer Deloitte for having given me the opportunity to develop my personal skills and professional competencies over the last fourteen years, which I will now bring to the activities of the ASCG in the interest of the German business community,” Professor Barckow declared on accepting the Administrative Board’s vote.
