ICAEW has announced Julia Penny as its new Vice President for the upcoming year, with a view to her becoming president in 2022.

Julia is an audit, accounting and anti-money laundering technical specialist and has previously worked at organisations such Wilmington PLC, Wolters Kluwer and Baker Tilly, where she later joined the ICAEW council in 2013.

She remained a member of the ICAEW Technical Strategy Board until June 2017, when she finally joined the ICAEW Ethics Advisory Committee, which she currently chairs.

Along with this, Julia has been a member of the ICAEW Board since June 2017.

She said: “I am passionate about my membership of ICAEW and I believe that as Vice-President I can help to restore trust in our profession and develop the future of chartered accountancy.

“I have experience of audit, ethics and financial reporting, having taught and written about them for 30 years. I want to use that experience to ensure ICAEW adapts to a changing landscape, fully reflects the diversity of current and future members, and acts to restore trust in our profession.”

William Brooks, current Vice-President of ICAEW, commented: “Congratulations to Julia on her election as Vice-President. There was a strong field of candidates for the role, as there is every year. Julia has shown great enthusiasm and commitment to ICAEW and is an excellent choice as Vice-President. I look forward to working with her.”

Julia will be Deputy President from June 2021 to June 2022 and will finally become ICAEW President from June 2022 to June 2023.
