Richtermeyer takes IMA chair

Sandra Richtermeyer has become the fourth female chair of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) in the organisation’s 90-year history.

Richtermeyer is chair of the Department of Accountancy in the Williams College of Business at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio.

She specialises in teaching managerial accounting, corporate governance, non-profit accounting and information systems.

Her research areas include technology enablement and enterprise systems, non-profit accounting and professional issues for accountants.

She also works actively as a governance consultant and with a variety of professional organisations.

Richtermeyer has been actively involved with the IMA’s governance and operations for 15 years.

This has included chairing the IMA’s planning and development committee, chairing the external and member relations committee, chairing the IMA Foundation for Applied Research and chairing the national committee on students.

She has also held multiple leadership positions at chapter and council level.

IMA president and chief executive Jeff Thomson said Richtermeyer has demonstrated a long-standing, unwavering passion for the organisation and its members.

“[Richtermeyer] will be a driving force in IMA’s continued growth and value-focus in the year ahead,” Thomson said.

Richtermeyer will chair the IMA board and governance committee for the 2010-2011 financial year, which ends on 30 June 2011.

The IMA is a US-based organisation with more than 60,000 professionals and 25,000 students worldwide.
