Accounting trends

The chair of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) was reappointed to a second term after an ambitious first three years in the role that have seen the agency work to update many of its standards deemed outdated.

Erica Williams’ new term will run through October 2029, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced Tuesday. The SEC oversees the PCAOB.

Williams was named PCAOB chair in November 2021 as part of a full board overhaul. Her initial term was set to expire in October.
