XBRL International Welcomes New Board Member
We are pleased to announce that Karla McKenna, Head of Standards at the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) has been elected to the XBRL International Board of Directors.
Karla is an international standards specialist in the financial services arena. She has been involved with the XBRL community since 2009 through her work on ISO standards, and she has also previously served as a member of the Board of Directors.
Robert Tarola, Chair of XBRL International’s Board of Directors, said, “We warmly welcome Karla back to the Board. She brings extremely valuable experience to the role. Her election also helps us deepen our existing and very important collaboration with GLEIF.”
Stephan Wolf, CEO of GLEIF said, “We consider the connections between the LEI and the XBRL standard to be a natural and very relevant part of the global regulatory architecture, bringing globally unique identification together with the digitisation of performance and risk reports of all kinds. We are therefore very pleased to support Karla’s involvement with XBRL International.”
