International Financial Reporting Standards Board
Philippe Danjou has been a member of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) since 2006.
He graduated from HEC, then qualified as a Chartered Accountant and Registered Statutory Auditor, and joined Arthur Andersen & Co. (Paris) in 1970. At Arthur Andersen, Mr Danjou ultimately became an audit partner.
He was Executive Director of the French Ordre des Experts Comptables (OEC) from 1982 until 1986.
Until his appointment to the IASB, he was the director of the accounting division of the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF), the French securities regulator.
He served as a member of the International Auditing Practices Committee (the predecessor body to the IAASB) and as a technical adviser to the French delegate to the former International Accounting Standards Committee, the predecessor to the IASB. He also participated in the works of the Committee on Auditing set up by the European Commission with a view to prepare the bases for the reform of the audit profession recently introduced in the EU.
While at the AMF, he served on the IASB’s Standards Advisory Council, as a member of IOSCO’s Standing Committee 1 on Multinational Accounting and Disclosure, and on the Financial Reporting Committee of the Committee of European Securities Regulators (CESRFin) where he led the project of organizing the transition from national accounting frameworks to the IFRS.
