CIMA elects president

Malcolm Furber was elected president of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) at its AGM on Saturday, 15 June.

Furber has been a member of CIMA’s council for 15 years and was involved in its last four qualification reviews and the review of its ethical code. He was previously chairman of CIMA’s lifelong learning policy committee and is also a regular speaker for CIMA globally on integrated business planning and performance management.

In 1980 he moved to South Africa and held various senior positions in finance, IT and corporate planning at Imperial Chemical Industries. He now runs his own consulting business and has played a major role in business improvement assignments in both the private and public sector in South Africa, including a two-year business intelligence project at the South African Revenue Services.

Furber said: "Amidst difficult economic conditions, CIMA’s relevance to global employers continues to grow. I am very excited to be presiding over CIMA as our joint venture with the American Institute of CPAs, which has established the chartered global management accountant designation, shapes the future of the management accounting profession. I will be looking to further develop CIMA’s activities and strategies on a global scale with our students, members and stakeholders."

At the AGM Keith Luck was elected deputy president, and Myriam Madden vice-president. Luck has extensive experience in both the public and private sector and has been a CIMA speaker and an ambassador for the organisation throughout his career. In 2004 he was voted CIMA’s Business Leader of the Year for his pivotal role in transforming the finances of the Metropolitan Police.

Madden is currently director of finance at Historic Scotland.
