The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) has selected Kevin J. Dancey, FCPA, FCA, to become their next chief executive officer, succeeding Fayez Choudhury at the end of the year. Mr. Dancey, who previously served as president and chief executive officer of CPA Canada and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants, has long been a trusted
adviser to NASBA leadership. He participated in several leadership summit meetings for the U.S., Canadian and Mexican accounting professions and was a keynote speaker at NASBA’s 2010 Annual Meeting addressing “Global Professionals Reaching Out to Neighbors.”

Mr. Dancey currently chairs Finance Canada’s Departmental Audit Committee and is the national coordinator of the CPA Canada Martin Family Initiative. He served as PWC’s Canadian Senior Partner and Chief Executive Officer, and, prior to the firm’s global merger, he was Coopers & Lybrand’s national tax practice leader. He will join IFAC on May 14, 2018. IFAC has more than 175 member organizations in over 130 jurisdictions.

“Kevin is a practical visionary who successfully guided the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants through its reorganization into the unified professional body now respected as CPA Canada,” NASBA President Ken L. Bishop said. “He is truly an outstanding leader of the global profession who understands how regulation strengthens its promise of public protection.”
