CPA Australia elects president and chairman

Graeme Wade has been elected as the new president and chairman of the board of CPA Australia, effective 1 October 2014.

Wade will be taking over outgoing president Penny Egan, for whom he served as a deputy president in the last year and will be assisted by newly elected deputy presidents Peter Dowling and Tyrone Carlin.

Wade has been on CPA Australia board of director since 2006 and was previously chairman of the policy governance, audit and risk and finance committees.

"CPA Australia continues to strive to be the world's best member services organisation," Wade said following his election. "I'm delighted to continue the great work of an organisation of which I'm extremely proud."

According to The Accountant 2014 World Survey, CPA Australia counts 105,518 members worldwide, of which 79,481 are based in Australia.

In the wake of Wade's election, CPA Australia announced further changes to its board. Directors Bruce Trebilcock, Christina Foo and Mark Grey have retired, while David Spong and Michele Dolin have been elected as member directors.

Richard Alston has also been elected a non-member director and Richard Petty has been re-elected for a further term.
