The AICPA has named Jim Dolinar chairman of the financial reporting executive committee (FinREC), one of the institute’s most important volunteer bodies with representation from business and industry, public practice and academia. It serves as the AICPA’s official voice on financial reporting matters and develops industry-specific accounting guidance.
Dolinar is MP of the assurance professional practice, national office of Chicago-based Crowe Horwath LLP (FY13 net revenue of $598 million).
“Jim brings valuable skills to FinREC. His experience includes quality control functions such as matters related to accounting, auditing, ethics, independence, inspections and monitoring as well as practice matters related to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other regulatory bodies,” says Richard Paul, FinREC’s current chair and a partner at Deloitte LLP. “FinREC will benefit from his wealth of knowledge and leadership.”
Dolinar will succeed Paul at the committee’s November meeting.
