Ex-IASB Tech Manager Returns To Duff & Phelps

May 8 2013 | 10:58am ET

Hilary Eastman, who spent seven years as a senior technical manager at the international accounting standards board, has returned to the financial advisory firm Duff & Phelps.

Eastman began her career in PricewaterhouseCoopers’ corporate value consulting practice, focusing on financial and tax reporting valuations. She moved from San Francisco to Amsterdam in 2003, as the business expanded internationally. She relocated to London in 2005, the year Duff & Phelps acquired the Standard & Poor’s corporate value consulting group, which included PwC’s legacy valuation business.

Eastman, whose work with the IASB included leading a project to create the accounting standard on fair value measurement, will take up the role of director in Duff & Phelps' office of professional practice. She will be based in the firm’s London office.

“We are pleased that Hilary has come full circle with Duff & Phelps, bringing her deep knowledge of complex financial issues and experience on the inside of cutting-edge regulatory activity to help our professionals and our clients navigate a wide range of challenging matters,” said Paul Barnes, managing director and global head of valuation advisory services for Duff & Phelps.
