Mazars, the international audit and advisory firm, congratulates Chiara Del Prete for her appointment as Chairman of the TEG of the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG). Mazars takes great pride in contributing one of its top leading female partners to the chair of TEG at EFRAG.
The Board of EFRAG appointed Chiara Del Prete as chairwoman at its meeting held on 29 January 2019. Her mandate will start on 1 April 2019.
Chiara Del Prete, partner based in Milan, has been leading the Firm’s banking advisory services in Italy since 2016. She has been advising the main financial institutions as they faced the challenges of financial reporting, corporate reporting and banking regulatory developments. Her experience is a unique combination of skills and knowledge developed as senior officer in one of the major Italian banks, at EFRAG and as an auditor before joining Mazars.
As Chairwoman of the EFRAG TEG, Chiara will lead the technical activities of EFRAG and will provide expert recommendations to the EFRAG Board in its advisory role to the European Commission on whether newly issued or revised IFRS Standards meet the criteria in the IAS Regulation for endorsement for use in the EU.
Reacting to her appointment, Hervé Hélias, Chairman and CEO of Mazars, said: “We are very proud of Chiara’s appointment.
