Former CIMA president Anthony Howitt dies

Anthony Wentworth Howitt, former president of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) in 1972 and 1973, has died aged 93.

Howitt became a CIMA fellow in 1958 and worked at KPMG for 38 years.

He also served with distinction on a number of government committees and was made Master of the Worshipful Company of Merchant Taylors in 1980 and 1981.

In 1984, Howitt set up a Trust Deed to finance a biennial lecture aimed at publicising CIMA and furthering the profession of management accountancy.

In 1991 he was awarded the CIMA Institute Medal for "outstanding services to the Institute and to the profession".

Howitt wrote several articles on the use of computers in auditing during the early years of data processing.

He is survived by his wife June and 12 nephews and nieces.
