Deputy Chief Executive Hilde Blomme provides insight into how FEE works towards European consensus-building


FEE Member Body Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) published an interview with our Deputy Chief Executive, Hilde Blomme, for their monthly magazine Accounting and Business. This article highlights how FEE and its members work together on European consensus-building regarding policies and standards affecting the accountancy profession.

“As deputy chief executive of FEE, Hilde Blomme FCCA sees her main challenge as seeking consensus on policy direction from the federation’s diverse membership.

‘I’m not a patient person,’ says Hilde Blomme FCCA, deputy chief executive of the European Federation of Accountants (FEE). It is hard to believe, given the glacial pace at which things happen within the European Union. Blomme herself recounts that the longest the European Parliament has taken to agree on a particular project is 29 years (in the case of unitary patents) and the shortest is 18 months. When she joined FEE as director of practice regulation in 2003, it was working on audit reform. ‘That was one of my first files,’ she says. More than a decade later, it still dominates the agenda.”
