CABA, the UK charity which supports chartered accountants and their families, has added three trustees to its board. They will help support the board in its aim to ‘fairly and inclusively’ represent the profession.
The three new trustees are:
- Angela Catlin, a chartered accountant with over nine years of banking experience.
- Fay Ashwell, executive director and chief operating officer at Oxford University Endowment Management
- Natalie Hall, a European Mentoring and Coaching Council-accredited senior coach practitioner who specialises in emotional intelligence, resilience and wellbeing coaching for leaders and organisations.
CABA president Kaaeed Mamujee said: Between them, all of our new Trustees have varied and complementary experience in the accountancy sector. Angela and Fay bring extremely strong investment and management backgrounds to the Board, which means they understand the world in which our members are operating and the pressures they face. While this is also true of Natalie, her experience crosses financial services and wellbeing. This not only enables her to put herself in the shoes of our members, but her coaching and wellness experience will be instrumental in driving forward new and creative ways for the charity to offer support.
‘We recognise the need to be progressive in our strategic thinking and delivery of service and it is for this reason I am delighted with the addition of our new Trustees to the Board. They join us at a difficult time, when our support is more vital than ever. They will be working to determine our future direction and to ensure that CABA continues to fulfil the needs of our community in a way that not just meets but surpasses their expectations.
Last month, CABA provided advice to accountants on how to minimise the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on their career progression.
