Gilbert, 46, will join the council with immediate effect and will take up his new post in April 2002. He is expected to become ICAS president in 2004 when the institute celebrates its 150th anniversary.
His nomination will be presented to council at the institute’s annual general meeting in April next year when ICAS president Andrew Christie will pass on the presidential baton to Cahal Dowds.
After qualifying with Deloitte, Haskins and Sells in 1982 Gilbert went into investment management and in 1983 became one of the founding directors of Aberdeen Asset Management. The group is Scotland’s largest independent asset management business with over 1,000 employees and 26 offices in 12 different countries following the recent acquisition of Murray Johnston, a Glasgow-based fund manager.
Welcoming the council’s nomination for Gilbert, Christie said: ‘With fully two-thirds of our members in business rather than practice, Martin’s outstanding record of achievement in fund management will provide a timely reminder of the value of our qualification to the international business world. I am sure that serving as president in our 150th anniversary year will be a particularly rewarding experience.’
