Miskin becomes CIMA president with over 25 years’ experience in the management consulting sector

CIMA has elected management consulting veteran Andrew Miskin as its 83rd president, as the institute agrees to a new accounting association with US institute the AICPA.

The former IBM, KPMG and PwC employee has 25 years’ experience as a management consultant, and will be responsible for chairing the institute’s governance arrangements and advocating for CIMA and management accounting.

Throughout his 25 year career, Miskin has held a variety of roles within CIMA, including serving on the CIMA council, as chairman of its members’ services committee and as deputy president of the executive committee.

Commenting on his appointment, Miskin said that this is “one of the most exciting times for CIMA” as the “role of management accountants is evolving from the reporting of financial and operational performance”.

“Today, it is about communicating decision-relevant information and providing management with a forecast of potential outcomes,” continued Miskin, adding that he has the “good fortune” to begin his presidency at a time when management accountancy is becoming “more relevant than ever”.

On the day of his election to president, the result of a member ballot in favour of a new accounting association with the AICPA was also announced, with Miskin now responsible of overseeing the creation of the new body, which was first brought to light in 2011.

Founded in 1919, CIMA is the world’s largest professional body of management accountants, with over 229,000 members and students operating in 176 countries.
