Commenting on his appointment, Costello said that he was ‘looking forward to working with the council of ICAI to guide the Institute into a new and exciting era’.

‘Brian Walsh has worked tirelessly to bring this institute through a difficult and challenging period for it and the accounting profession generally,’ said Terence O’Rourke, ICAI President, of the outgoing CEO. ‘He will leave the Institute in a healthy position ready for the challenges ahead. For that we owe him our thanks.’
