Posted 19 October, 2011

Newest appointment highlights next steps in the journey towards Integrated Reporting

The International Integrated Reporting Committee (IIRC) has announced the appointment of Paul Druckman as its new Chief Executive Officer. In this role, he will represent and lead the work of Integrated Reporting.

Serving as Committee Chairman for The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project, Mr. Druckman has played a leading role in Integrated Reporting since the inception of the IIRC in August 2010. He served as Co‐chairman of the IIRC Working Group and Chairman of the Content taskforce, and spearheaded engagement activities over the past year, leading to the recent launch of the Integrated Reporting Discussion Paper Towards Integrated Reporting – Communicating Value in the 21st Century.

With a notable career spanning more than 35 years, Mr. Druckman is well known and respected in business and in the accounting profession world‐wide. Following a successful business career in the technology sector, Paul operated as a non‐executive Chairman and Director for a number of companies in a variety of sectors until taking over this post. Formerly, he was a Director of the Financial Reporting Council, a member of the City Takeover Panel and President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

Christy Wood, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the International Corporate Governance Network and IIRC member says:

“Under Paul’s leadership as Chairman of the Content taskforce, the IIRC was able to successfully launch the Integrated Reporting Discussion Paper. He has tirelessly worked to bring together all stakeholders ‐ including companies, reporting organisations, investors, policy‐makers, regulators, assurance providers, academics and others ‐ which has resulted in creating a truly valuable global dialogue around Integrated Reporting.”

Professor Mervyn King, Chairman of the IIRC, says:

“The IIRC is grateful that Paul has accepted this appointment. His commitment will allow us to move ahead as we transition the already successful IIRC into a more independent secretariat status, which is necessary to continue effectively responding to the growing work of Integrated Reporting.”

As CEO, Mr. Druckman’s first duties revolve around implementing next steps related to the recent launch of the <IR> Discussion Paper and the <IR> Pilot Programme.
