Commerce Minister Lianne Dalziel today announced the reappointment of Ken Warren to his second five-year term on the Accounting Standards Review Board (ASRB), which is responsible for reviewing and approving New Zealand's financial reporting standards.

"Mr Warren's 28 years of experience in public sector accounting has provided a valuable perspective to the ASRB so I am pleased that he has agreed to continue to provide the board with the benefit of his expertise. His perspective will help ensure the board continues to consider the implications of financial reporting standards on the public sector," Lianne Dalziel said.

Mr Warren is currently a Chief Accounting Advisor at the Treasury and prior to that, worked in the Audit Office for 11 years.
