NZICA appoints president ahead of Trans-Tasman merger

The New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (NZICA) has appointed Fred Hutchings as president at a time when the institute prepares for the merger with the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia (ICAA).

In November 2013, members of both the ICAA and the NZICA voted in favour of a merger which will turn the two professional bodies into a single Trans-Tasman institute.

The merger is expected to be completed by April this year after the necessary changes to the NZICA Act and Royal Charter in Australia are made.

Following the establishment of the new professional body Hutchings will then move into the role of vice-president of the merged institute.

Hutchings was a partner with PwC for 27 and has held different roles within the NZICA executive board, council and committees.

NZICA has also appointed Kevin Murphy as vice-president. He is chief executive at New Zealander bank TSB Bank.
