ICAEW elects vice president

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW) elected Open University lecturer Hilary Lindsay as the ICAEW vice president. She will be the second woman in the institute's 134-year history to hold this role.

Lindsay's tenure as vice president will start on 5 June 2014 while current vice president and PwC partner Andrew Ratcliffe will take over Martyn Jones as president. In June 2016 Lindsay will in turn take over Ratcliff as president of the ICAEW.

Her appointment comes 16 years after Dame Sheila Masters (now Baroness Noakes) took office as the ICAEW's first woman president.

Lindsay is an MBA lecturer at the Open University business school since 1999. Prior to this she held several managerial positions at the ICAEW including finance director of the accountancy business group. She started her accountancy career in a small firm in the north west of England.

ICAEW president Martyn Jones welcomed Lindsay's appointment and said she will be faced with the task of influencing and directing the institute "to increase access to the profession, enhance leadership in ICAEW chartered accountants to steer the economic recovery and have greater influence in regulation".

"We continue to have a critical role to play through our work with our members, governments and regulators all over the world, and I'm thrilled that we are able to call on Hilary to help us achieve this," he added.
