The management accountants' body has announced the appointment of three senior directors to work alongside secretary John Chester to deal with the expected changes.The three appointments include a director of the new department of professional standards, which aims to make sure the institute's by-laws fall in line with the regulatory changes.
Mandie Lavin, previously director of professional conduct for the United Kingdom Central Council for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting, will take up the role. Its new director of members' services will be Maurice Cheng, who has been appointed to replace Jake Claret, who retires in July 2000. Cheng will take up his appointment early next year.
Meanwhile Robert Jelly, currently Head of Dundee Business School at the University of Abertay Dundee, will become director of student affairs. Although CIMA is launching a revised qualification next year, Robert will be expected to lead a permanent rolling review. He takes up his appointment at the beginning of February 2000.
'No professional accountancy body can afford to stand still,' said Chester. 'These senior appointments will bring a highly strategic dimension to CIMA and help ensure that it continues to lead business into the 21st century, with a business management qualification that is global.
