Eric Hansen named chairman of the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants

Eric Hansen has been named chairman of the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (the Association). The global organisation is formed by members of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA).

The governing councils of the AICPA and CIMA approved the one-year appointment of Hansen, who also serves as chair of the AICPA. He will work closely with CIMA president Steven Swientozielskyj who will serve as the Association’s vice chairman.

Hansen is chief operating officer at BKD, where he oversees firm-wide operations and acts as a liaison between BKD’s national office and its four regions.

In addition to his tenure as chair of the AICPA, Hansen has served as chair of the AICPA finance committee and as a member of the AICPA’s major firms group.

On his appointment, Hansen said: “The competency and integrity we stand for as a profession has never been more important than it is right now as businesses and clients navigate intensifying complexity at hyperspeed.

“To help them keep pace, we have to push ourselves further and faster – reimagining services, seizing new technologies and developing new skills. The Association is leading the profession to meet the needs of this transformational time, and I am humbled and honoured to serve in this role.”
