 Prior to joining the World Bank in August 1999, John Hegarty had been - since January 1987 - Secretary General of the Federation des Experts Comptables Europeens (FEE), the representative organisation for the accountancy profession in Europe. He served on the Boards of the European Policy Centre (Brussels) and the Centre for European Policy Studies (Brussels).
 
 Born in Sligo, Ireland in 1958, John Hegarty was educated at Newbridge College and University College, Dublin, where he studied business administration. On graduation he joined the Dublin office of Arthur Andersen, and became a manager in the audit division. In 1981 he qualified as an Associate of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland, and in 1992 was admitted as a Fellow of that Institute. In 1984, he was appointed Technical Director of the Union Europeenne des Experts Comptables, Economiques et Financiers (UEC), based in Munich, Germany, which at the time was one of two organisations representing the accountancy profession in Europe. When, with effect from January 1, 1987, UEC merged with the other organisation  the Groupe d Etudes des Experts Comptables de la CEE  to form FEE, John Hegarty moved to Brussels, Belgium to become first Secretary General of the new body.
