Taking Stock

TS hears of a hitherto unknown nautical bent at CIMA. Charles Tilley – the body’s new chief executive and, whisper it, a chartered accountant – is a keen sailor.

No great surprise there: a former investment banker such as Tilley would have needed a costly hobby to occupy his City paycheck. But with John Chester and Sir George Vallings, Tilley’s predecessors as captain of the good ship CIMA, also hoary old seadogs, TS thought it could smell something fishy in the criteria used to select the chief executive.

In the spirit of investigative journalism, we were tempted to ring CIMA with a long list of not particularly funny sailing puns but couldn’t be bothered.
