Congratulations Professor Nonna Martinov-Bennie

Congratulations to Professor Nonna Martinov-Bennie, who has been appointed for a 3 year term to the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (AUASB).

Professor Martinov-Bennie has had a long history of involvement with both the auditing and accounting professional bodies, having served on various committees such as the Institute of Chartered Accountant's Audit Advisory Committee of which she has been a member since 2007.

Professor Martinov-Bennie also serves as Director of the International Governance and Performance Research Centre (IGAP) at Macquarie University, which seeks to addresses contemporary issues in international governance and performance.

Her appointment to the AUASB came about following a call for a expressions of interest from the Financial Reporting Council (FRC). She was encouraged by senior members of the profession to apply.

Professor Martinov-Bennie says she was pleasantly surprised on being informed that she had been selected to replace Mr Mike Blake (Auditor-General of Tasmania) to serve on the AUASB until the end of 2014.

As the only academic appointed to the AUASB, Professor Martinov-Bennie brings an important perspective informed by research to the standard setting process and her selection to the AUASB further highlights the teaching and research quality of Macquarie University academic staff.

"My appointment is not only a great personal honour, but also a reflection of the high standing and credibility of the Faculty of Business and Economics and the Department of Accounting and Corporate Governance at Macquarie University," Professor Martinov-Bennie states.
