Stein leads CIPFA charge in the business world – more to follow?

Did you notice the appointment of Gordon Stein as the new CFO of Cadogan Petroleum?

It was interesting primarily for one reason – not because we have a picture of the company’s Ukrainian treatment plant – but because Stein is CIPFA-qualified.

Rare to see a ‘public sector accountant’ take a top PLC role, although to be fair to Stein he’s been doing it for years.

Wonder whether government cuts, such as the Audit Commission’s imminent demise, will see more CIPFAs entering the sphere of business – or even practice?
