Beresford was chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board from 1987 to 1997 and, before that, national director of accounting standards for Ernst & Young. He also was an elected at-large member of the AICPA council and served on many Institute committees, including the Accounting Standards Executive Committee, of which he was chairman.
