Notable among the other new appointees is former SEC Chairman Richard Breeden.
SAG, which consists of members from a variety of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board's (PCAOB) constituencies -- including auditors, preparers, investors, academics and others -- serves a critical role in advising PCAOB on critical and emerging issues.
In addition, PCAOB seeks input from members of SAG on its standard-setting priorities and proposals.
