Washington-The Center for Audit Quality has re-elected four members of its governing board.

Ernst & Young chairman and CEO James Turley has been unanimously re-elected to serve a second term as chair of the governing board. Michele Hooper, co-founder of The Directors' Council, and American Institute of CPAs president and chief executive officer Barry Melancon will extend their service as co-vice chairs. Harvard business administration professor Lynn Paine has been re-elected as a public board member.

"I'm delighted that Jim, Michele and Barry will remain in leadership roles, and that we will also continue to benefit from Lynn's corporate governance expertise," said CAQ executive director Cindy Fornelli in a statement.

Most of the other members of the CAQ board have also remained in place since shortly after the CAQ was founded in 2007. They include Crowe Horwath CEO Charles M. Allen, former SEC Commissioner Harvey J. Goldschmid, PricewaterhouseCoopers chairman Robert E. Moritz (who replaced PwC's Dennis Nally on the board), Grant Thornton CEO Edward E. Nusbaum, Deloitte CEO Barry Salzberg, McGladrey & Pullen managing partner David Scudder, KPMG CEO John Veihmeyer (who replaced KPMG's Timothy Flynn on the CAQ board) and BDO Seidman CEO Jack Weisbaum.
