botosan2The Financial Accounting Foundation announced it has appointed Christine Ann Botosan as a new member of the Financial Accounting Standards Board. She will replace Thomas J. Linsmeier, whose term is set to expire this year. 

Botosan is a professor at the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah, and specializes in the determinants and market consequences of corporate reporting strategy. She has a Ph.D. in business administration and is also a certified valuation analyst. 

 “Christine’s deep understanding of the relationship between high-quality accounting standards and the capital markets will make her a valuable addition to the FASB,” said Charles H. Noski, chairman of the FAF Board of Trustees. “The combination of her extensive background in academia and her expertise in financial statement analysis and valuation will bring a unique perspective to the FASB—especially as it continues to serve users of financial reports by improving financial accounting and reporting standards.” 

Botosan's term begins July 1, 2016 and conclude on June 30, 2021, when she will be eligible for appointment to an additional term of five years. 

The FAF did not say anything about a replacement for outgoing member Daryl E. Buck, who plans to retire before the end of his second term.
