The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) has elected Mark Rhys as vice-president, taking over the role from Julia Penny in June 2021.

Commenting on his appointment, Rhys said: “I am delighted to be elected the new ICAEW Vice-President and will look to use my 30 years of experience to represent the accountancy profession. My priorities will revolve around ensuring quality, delivering meaningful audit reform, creating a diverse and inclusive industry, and importantly, reinforcing trust in our profession. After all, accountants – whether they be tax advisors, auditors or other finance specialists – play a fundamental role in the UK and global economy.”
