The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) has appointed Shelley Brown as chairman, and Len Boggio as vice chair, to its board of directors.
Brown has been a member of CICA’s board for eight year and is currently a partner at Deloitte’s Vancouver office having previously held the position of Office Managing Partner at their Saskatchewan branch.
Boggio recently retired from public practice following a 30-year career with PwC where he worked in the mining, energy and financial services sectors. He is also the former president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of British Columbia (ICABC) and was elected fellow to the same organisation in 2007.
These appointments come at a time when unification efforts are taking place within Canada’s accounting profession as the three accounting bodies look to merge. Both Browne and Boggio recognise the importance of their new roles at this time of change.
“It is an honour to represent the CA profession at such an exciting and pivotal time,” Brown said.
Boggio added as the accounting landscape is changing in Canada with the unification initiative “I look forward to working hard to meet our commitment to protecting the public interest as the accounting profession evolves.”
