ICAS chief executive Anton Colella is to leave the professional body to take up the role of global CEO at Moore Stephens International.

Colella joined ICAS in 2006 from the Scottish Qualification Authority. Commenting on his departure, Colella said: “It is with a heavy heart that I leave ICAS after ten years. I would like to thank all those who I have worked with in my tenure as Chief Executive, especially our members and our outstanding employees.

“I believe that working together we have taken huge and important steps towards building the leading global professional community.

“However, after ten years at the helm at ICAS the opportunity to become global CEO at Moore Stephens International was impossible to resist, especially as it allows me to continue to lead change at the heart of the global profession.”

Brian Souter, ICAS president, said: “Over the past decade, Anton has been the architect of a transformed ICAS and we want to thank him for his immense contribution. We wish him well with his new endeavours and we believe he will continue to have a valuable role as a leader in the accountancy profession.

“We will commence a recruitment process to find a successor who can lead ICAS forward and continue to position us as one of the world’s most influential business networks.”

Colella will remain as CEO of ICAS while the recruitment process to find his replacement gets underway.

ICAS has made some high-profile appointments to its council and boards this year, with Dame Lin Homer, former chief executive of HMRC, having been appointed to the ICAS council as a public interest member, and Dame Elish Angiolini appointed as chair of its Discipline Board.
