The board of the International Accounting Standards Committee has appointed Eiichi Shiratori of Japan to the post of chairman for a term of two and one-half years, succeeding Arthur Wyatt of the United States. Michael Sharpe of Australia was appointed deputy chairman and will succeed Shiratori in July 1995.

Shiratori graduated from Chuo University in 1958 and attended graduate school at Northwestern University while working at Arthur Andersen & Co.'s Chicago office. He helped open that firm's Tokyo office in 1962, eventually rising to managing partner of Japanese operations. He is currently chief executive officer of IONA International in Tokyo.
